Several observations suggest an interaction of the sodium channel alpha-subunit with the cytoskeletal structures. However, there is a wide variability in the results of experiments of heterologous expression in Xenopus oocytes and studies on mammalian cells are sometimes contradictory. In general, there has been no direct demonstration that ad hoc large… CONTINUE READING
