A potassium channel opener for neuropathy, motor neuron disease and beyond.

Abstract

he major functions of potassium channels are to prevent repettive firing of the excitable cells (fast potassium channels) and to aintain resting membrane potentials (slow potassium channels). etigabine opens a neuronal voltage-gated potassium channel Kv7), one of the slow channels, resulting in resting membrane otential stabilization. It decreases abnormal… (More)
