After channel activation, and in some cases with sub-threshold depolarizing stimuli, Kv channels undergo a time-dependent loss of conductivity by a family of mechanisms termed inactivation. To date, all identified inactivation mechanisms underlying loss of conduction in Kv channels appear to be distinct from deactivation, i.e. closure of the voltage-operated activation gate by changes in transmembrane voltage. Instead, Kv channel inactivation entails entry of channels into a stable, non… CONTINUE READING
