MgADP antagonism to Mg2+-independent ATP binding of the sulfonylurea receptor SUR1.

Pancreatic beta-cell ATP-sensitive potassium (KATP) channels play an important role in the regulation of glucose-induced insulin secretion. The beta-cell KATP channel comprises two subunits, the sulfonylurea receptor SUR1, a member of the ATP-binding cassette (ABC) superfamily, and Kir6.2, a member of the inward rectifier K+ channel family. The activity of… (More)
