K+ channels play a crucial role in regulating the excitability of neurons. Many K+ channels are, in turn, regulated by neurotransmitters. One of the first neurotransmitter-regulated channels to be identified, some 25 years ago, was the M channel. This was categorized as such because its activity was inhibited through stimulation of muscarinic acetylcholine receptors. M channels are now known to be composed of subunits of the Kv7 (KCNQ) K+ channel family. However, until recently, the link… CONTINUE READING
