Heteromeric assembly of KCNQ2 and KCNQ3 subunits underlie the M-current (I(KM)), a slowly activating and noninactivating neuronal K(+) current. Mutations in KCNQ2 and KCNQ3 genes cause benign(More)
We investigated the molecular basis of hyperekplexia (STHE), an inherited neurological disorder characterised by neonatal hypertonia and an exaggerated startle response, in a kindred and identified a(More)
In this study, we have compared the functional consequences of three mutations (R218Q, V260M, and Q266H) in the alpha(1) subunit of the glycine receptor (GlyRA1) causing hyperekplexia, an inherited(More)
KCNQ2 and KCNQ3 K+ channel subunits underlie the muscarinic-regulated K+ current (I(KM)), a widespread regulator of neuronal excitability. Mutations in KCNQ2- or KCNQ3-encoding genes cause benign(More)
Hyperekplexia or startle disease (STHE, OMIM 149400) is a rare neurological disorder characterised by neonatal generalised muscular hypertonia followed by a period of generalised stiffness and by an(More)
