Genomic organization of a voltage-gated Na+ channel in a hydrozoan jellyfish: insights into the evolution of voltage-gated Na+ channel genes.


Voltage-gated Na+ channels are responsible for fast propagating action potentials. The structurally simplest animals known to contain rapid, transient, voltage-gated currents carried exclusively by Na+ ions are the Cnidaria. The Cnidaria are thought to be close to the origin of the metazoan radiation and thus are pivotal organisms for studying the evolution… (More)
