Polyunsaturated fatty acids such as arachidonic acid (AA) exhibit inhibitory modulation of Kv4 potassium channels. Molecular docking approaches using a Kv4.2 homology model predicted a membrane-embedded binding pocket for AA comprised of the S4-S5 linker on one subunit and several hydrophobic residues within S3, S5 and S6 from an adjacent subunit.

All vertebrate inwardly rectifying potassium (Kir) channels are activated by phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate (PIP2) (Logothetis, D. E., Petrou, V. I., Zhang, M., Mahajan, R., Meng, X.
