Mutations that reduce the function of KCNQ2 channels cause neuronal hyperexcitability, manifested as epileptic seizures and myokymia. These channels are present in nodes of Ranvier in rat brain and nerve and have been proposed to mediate the slow nodal potassium current I(Ks). We have used immunocytochemistry, electrophysiology and pharmacology to test this(More)
