Identification of regions that regulate the expression and activity of G protein-gated inward rectifier K+ channels in Xenopus oocytes.

1. The involvement of the cytoplasmic and core regions of K+ channel Kir3.1 and Kir3.2 subunits in determining the cell surface expression and G protein-gated activity of homomeric and heteromeric channel complexes was investigated by heterologous expression of chimeric and wild-type subunits together with the m2 muscarinic receptor in Xenopus oocytes. 2… CONTINUE READING
