Kcv, the first identified viral potassium channel encoded by the green algae Paramecium bursaria chlorella virus (PBCV-1), conducted K(+) selective currents when expressed in heterologous systems. This K(+) channel was proposed to be important for PBCV-1 infection and replication. In the present study, we identified and functionally characterized a novel K(+) channel Kesv, encoded by Ectocarpus siliculosus virus that infects filamentous marine brown algae. Kesv encodes a protein of 124 amino… CONTINUE READING
