Pharmacological Conversion of a Cardiac Inward Rectifier into an Outward Rectifier Potassium Channel.

Abstract

Potassium (K(+)) channels are crucial for determining the shape, duration, and frequency of action-potential firing in excitable cells. Broadly speaking, K(+) channels can be classified based on whether their macroscopic current outwardly or inwardly rectifies, whereby rectification refers to a change in conductance with voltage. Outwardly rectifying K… (More)
