The family of voltage-gated sodium channels initiates action potentials in all types of excitable cells. Nine members of the voltage-gated sodium channel family have been characterized in mammals, and a 10th member has been recognized as a related protein. These distinct sodium channels have similar structural and functional properties, but they initiate action potentials in different cell types and have distinct regulatory and pharmacological properties. This article presents the molecular… Expand

Subtype‐selective targeting of voltage‐gated sodium channels
TLDR
Electrophysiological characterization of clinically useful compounds in recombinant expression systems shows voltage‐gated sodium channels to be weak, with poor selectivity between channel types, which has led to the search for subtype‐selective modulators, which offer the promise of treatments with improved clinical efficacy and better toleration.
