Potassium currents play a critical role in action potential repolarization, setting of the resting membrane potential, control of neuronal firing rates, and regulation of neurotransmitter release. The diversity of the potassium channels that generate these currents is nothing less than staggering. This diversity is generated by multiple genes (as many as 100 and perhaps more in some creatures) encoding the pore-forming channel α subunits, alternative splicing of channel gene transcripts… CONTINUE READING
