[ATP-sensitive potassium channel and hormone/neuropeptide].


ATP-sensitive potassium channels (KATP) are the ion channels which are closely associated with cellular metabolism. A number of chemical compounds which block KATP facilitate the release of hormones or neuropeptides. For example, KATP-blocking agents such as antidiabetic sulfonylureas and imidazolines stimulate insulin secretion from pancreatic beta-cells… (More)
