Large subtype‐specific differences in the sensitivity of cloned inward‐rectifier K+ channels of the IRK1, BIR10 and ROMK1 subtype to being blocked by intracellular spermine (SPM) are described. It is shown, by site‐directed mutagenesis, that the four orders of magnitude larger SPM sensitivity of BIR10 channels compared to ROMK1 channels may be explained by a difference in a single amino acid in the putative transmembrane segment TMII. This residue, a negatively charged glutamate in BIR10, is… Expand
Permeation Properties of Inward-Rectifier Potassium Channels and Their Molecular Determinants
TLDR
It is proposed that the P-region and the COOH terminus contribute independently to the conductance and selectivity properties of the pore. Expand
Identification of a titratable lysine residue that determines sensitivity of kidney potassium channels (ROMK) to intracellular pH.
TLDR
It is reported here that the steep pH dependence of ROMK channels is determined by a single amino acid residue located in the N‐terminus close to the first hydrophobic segment M1. Expand
Polyamines as gating molecules of inward-rectifier K+ channels.
TLDR
The present molecular-biophysical understanding of inward-rectification and its physiological consequences is the topic of this review. Expand
The dependence of Ag+ block of a potassium channel, murine Kir2.1, on a cysteine residue in the selectivity filter
TLDR
To determine how many of the binding sites must be occupied by Ag+ before the channel is blocked, the rate of channel block was measured and it was found that the results were best fitted assuming that only one Ag+ ion need bind to eliminate channel current. Expand
Control of Rectification and Gating of Cloned KATP Channels by the Kir6.2 Subunit
TLDR
It is found that the [ATP] causing half-maximal inhibition of current (K i) was affected by mutation of N160, and channels formed from N160D or N160Q mutant subunits had lower apparent sensitivity to ATP. Expand
Molecular determinants for activation and inactivation of HERG, a human inward rectifier potassium channel.
TLDR
By analogy to functional aspects of cloned voltage‐gated potassium channels, rectification of HERG, as well as its kinetic properties during the course of an action potential, are presumably governed by a mechanism reminiscent of C‐type inactivation. Expand
The inward rectifier potassium channel family
TLDR
The molecular determinants of inward rectification have been largely elucidated with the discovery of endogenous polyamines that act as voltage-dependent intracellular channel blockers, and with the identification of a critical site in the channel that mediates high-affinity block by both polyamines and Mg2+.

TLDR
A review of the recent advances and the unresolved questions now on the agenda in GIRK studies concludes that these channels are important physiological tools to regulate excitability in heart and brain by neurotransmitters. Expand
C‐terminus determinants for Mg2+ and polyamine block of the inward rectifier K+ channel IRK1.
TLDR
The results are compatible with a model in which the negatively charged residue at position 224, E224, is a major determinant of pore properties in IRK1, and contributes to the formation of the binding pocket for Mg2+ and polyamines, a characteristic of strong inward rectifiers. Expand
Contributions of the C-terminal domain to gating properties of inward rectifier potassium channels
TLDR
The results demonstrate that structural elements in the C-terminus can independently control gating but not G protein signal transduction, and suggest a mechanism in which the pore may be occluded by reversible interactions with charged residues in the BIR10. Expand

A single aspartate residue is involved in both intrinsic gating and blockage by Mg2+ of the inward rectifier, IRK1.
TLDR
The effects on channel function of changing an aspartate residue (Asp172) in a membrane‐spanning alpha‐helix of the murine inward rectifier, IRK1, by site‐directed mutagenesis are described and the consequences for channel structure are discussed. Expand
Regulation of fast inactivation of cloned mammalian IK(A) channels by cysteine oxidation
TLDR
Fast-inactivating K+ currents mediated by cloned K+ channel subunits derived from mammalian brain expressed in Xenopus oocytes are regulated by the reducing agent glutathione, suggesting this type of regulation may have a role in vivo to link metabolism to excitability and to regulate excitability in specific membrane areas of mammalian neurons. Expand
Electrostatic tuning of Mg2+ affinity in an inward-rectifier K+ channel
TLDR
It is shown that mutations at one position in the second transmembrane segment can alter the Mg2+affinity and convert a weakly rectifying channel (ROMK1) into a strong rectifier. Expand
Gating of inwardly rectifying K+ channels localized to a single negatively charged residue
TLDR
A single amino-acid change within the putative transmembrane domain M2, aspartate in IRK1 to the corresponding asparagine in ROMK1, controls the gating phenotype, and seems to be a crucial determinant of gating. Expand
Primary structure and functional expression of a mouse inward rectifier potassium channel
TLDR
The IRK1 channel and an ATP-regulated K+ channel show extensive sequence similarity and constitute a new superfamily, similar to the inner core structure of voltage-gated K+ channels. Expand
Primary structure and functional expression of a rat G-protein-coupled muscarinic potassium channel
TLDR
A complementary DNA for a G-protein-coupled inwardly rectifying K+ channel (GIRK1) from rat heart is isolated and probably corresponds to the muscarinic K channel because its functional properties resemble those of the a trial muscaric K channel. Expand
Cloning and expression of an inwardly rectifying ATP-regulated potassium channel
TLDR
A complementary DNA encoding an ATP-regulated potassium channel has been isolated by expression cloning from rat kidney and the presence of an H5 region, which is likely to form the ion conduction pathway, indicates that the protein may share a common origin with voltage-gated potassium channel proteins.

Modulation by histamine of an inwardly rectifying potassium channel in human endothelial cells.
TLDR
It is concluded that endothelial cells possess K+ channels that are directly inhibited by agonists, such as histamine, which may depolarize the cell membrane and thereby reduce the driving force for Ca2+ influx. Expand
Intrinsic gating of inward rectifier in bovine pulmonary artery endothelial cells in the presence or absence of internal Mg2+
TLDR
Inward rectifier (IR) currents in bovine pulmonary artery endothelial cells have an intrinsic gating mechanism that is not due to Mg block, and the voltage dependence of alpha and beta shifted along with EK, as is characteristic of IR channels in other cells. Expand
Inward rectifier K+ currents in smooth muscle cells from rat resistance-sized cerebral arteries.
TLDR
The first direct measurements of inward rectifier K+ currents in single smooth muscle cells are provided and it is shown that external barium ions are effective blockers of these currents. Expand
