A novel potassium channel l~-subunit (K,~3) was cloned from rat brain being the third member of a K~iB subunit gene family. It is a protein of 403 amino acid residues with a 68% amino acid sequence homology to K,~I.1. KJ)3 is primarily expressed in rat brain having a distribution distinct to those of K~I.1 and K~2. This subunit also has a long N-terminal struc- ture and induces inactivation in N-terminal deleted K~l.4 but not in other members of the K~I channel family. Similarly to K,i~l.1, the… CONTINUE READING
