Expression of KCNQ2/3 (Kv7.2 and -7.3) heteromers underlies the neuronal M current, a current that is suppressed by activation of a variety of receptors that couple to the hydrolysis of phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate. Expression of Kv7.2/7.3 channels in human embryonic kidney (HEK) 293 cells produced a noninactivating potassium current characteristic(More)
