M channels, an important regulator of neural excitability, are composed of four subunits of the Kv7 (KCNQ) K+ channel family. M channels were named as such because their activity was suppressed by stimulation of muscarinic acetylcholine receptors. These channels are of particular interest because they are activated at the subthreshold membrane potentials. Furthermore, neural KCNQ channels are drug targets for the treatments of epilepsy and a variety of neurological disorders, including chronic… CONTINUE READING
