The family of K2P channels: salient structural and functional properties
TLDR
A synthetic view of the most noticeable features of K2P channels, which are central players in many processes, including ion homeostasis, hormone secretion, cell development and excitability, are given.
Small Molecule Investigation of KCNQ Potassium Channels: A Dissertation
TLDR
A model places calmodulin close to the gate ofKCNQ channels, providing structural insight into how CaM is able to communicate changes in intracellular calcium levels to KCNQ channel complexes.
New Structures and Gating of Voltage-Dependent Potassium (Kv) Channels and Their Relatives: A Multi-Domain and Dynamic Question
TLDR
This review considers several aspects of the VSD–PD coupling in Kv channels, and in some relatives, that share a common general structure characterized by a single square-shaped ion conduction pore in the center, surrounded by four VSDs located at the periphery.
Potassium Channels in Drosophila: Historical Breakthroughs, Significance, and Perspectives
TLDR
There are many areas in which Drosophila can further help the understanding of ion channels and their function, including signaling pathways involved in regulating and modulating ion channels, basic information on channels and currents where very little is currently known, and the role in physiology and pathology.
Positive Trafficking Pathways of a Voltage Gated Potassium Channel
TLDR
Channel trafficking is demonstrated as a mechanism for the positive regulation of the Kv1.2 ionic current and a novel role is identified for PRMT8, as a regulator of biosynthetic protein trafficking.
Pharmacological modulation of voltage-gated potassium channels as a therapeutic strategy

  • Biology
    Expert opinion on therapeutic patents
  • 2010
TLDR
This review summarizes patent and scientific literature reports from the past decade highlighting the opportunities that Kv channels offer for the development of new therapeutic interventions for a wide variety of disorders.
Medicinal Chemistry of Potassium Channel Modulators: An update of Recent Progress (2011-2017).
TLDR
The current understanding of medicinal chemistry research in the field of potassium channel modulators is discussed to update the key advances in this field.
Functional Implications of KCNE Subunit Expression for the Kv7.5 (KCNQ5) Channel
TLDR
The results have physiological relevance since Kv7.5 is abundant in skeletal and smooth muscle and its association with KCNE peptides may fine-tune cellular responses.

Genomic structure and regulation of Kcn1, a cGMP-gated potassium channel.
TLDR
The region of the novel potassium channel gene, Kcn1, is identified that contains the promoter, a 5' enhancer, and several cis-regulatory elements and shown that gene transcription is stimulated by cAMP and phorbol esters.
Characterization of a Novel Radiolabeled Peptide Selective for a Subpopulation of Voltage-gated Potassium Channels in Mammalian Brain*
TLDR
125I-BgK(W5Y/F6A/Y26F) represents a new tool for studying subpopulations of Kv1 channels in native tissues and displays a distinctive and unique pharmacological profile.
Inactivation Gating of Kv4 Potassium Channels
TLDR
It is proposed that components of the pore's internalibule control both closing and inactivation in Kv4 K+ channels and a kinetic model that assumes coupling between channel closing and Inactivation at depolarized membrane potentials accounts for the results.
Potassium channels in T lymphocytes: toxins to therapeutic immunosuppressants.
Interaction of the K Channel β Subunit,Hyperkinetic, with eag Family Members*
TLDR
It is shown that the Drosophila β subunit homologue Hyperkinetic (Hk) associates with members of the ether àgo-go (eag), as well as Sh, families, and is likely to have a much broader impact on the signaling properties of neurons and muscle fibers than previously suggested.
Identification of the Kv2.1 K+ Channel as a Major Component of the Delayed Rectifier K+ Current in Rat Hippocampal Neurons
TLDR
Together these studies show that Kv2.1, which is expressed at high levels in most mammalian central neurons, is a major contributor to the delayed rectifier K+ current in hippocampal neurons and that the KC antibody is a powerful tool for the elucidation of the role of the Kv 2.1 K+ channel in regulating neuronal excitability.
Molecular identification of a component of delayed rectifier current in gastrointestinal smooth muscles.
TLDR
Northern hybridization analysis and RT-PCR suggest that Kv2.2 may contribute to this current in native GI smooth muscle cells in native colonic myocytes.
Molecular physiology and pharmacology of HERG. Single-channel currents and block by dofetilide.
TLDR
The microscopic physiology of HERG and IKR is similar, consistent with HERG being an important component of IKr, and the pharmacology is also similar; dofetilide appears to primarily block activated channels and has a much lower affinity for closed and inactivated channels.
