Voltage-gated Kv1 potassium channels consist of pore-forming alpha subunits and cytoplasmic Kv beta subunits. The latter play diverse roles in modulating the gating, stability, and trafficking of Kv1 channels. The crystallographic structure of the Kv beta2 subunit revealed surprising structural homology with aldo-keto reductases, including a triosephosphate(More)
Huntington's disease (HD) is an autosomal dominant neurodegenerative disorder caused by an expanded CAG repeat in the HD gene. We reported recently that complexin II, a protein involved in neurotransmitter release, is depleted from both the brains of mice carrying the HD mutation and from the striatum of post mortem HD brains. Here we show that this loss of(More)
