Alcohol hypersensitivity, increased locomotion, and spontaneous myoclonus in mice lacking the potassium channels Kv3.1 and Kv3.3.


The Shaw-like potassium (K(+)) channels Kv3.1 and Kv3.3 are widely coexpressed in distinct neuronal populations in the CNS, possibly explaining the relatively "mild" phenotypes of the Kv3.1 and the Kv3.3 single mutant. Kv3.1-deficient mice show increased cortical gamma- and decreased delta-oscillations (Joho et al., 1997, 1999); otherwise, the Kv3.1-mutant… (More)
