Potassium ion channels: could they have evolved from viruses?

Abstract

All potassium channels share a common architecture consisting of their pore module with two transmembrane domains and a conserved filter region that selects for K ions. The current view is that the plethora of complex K channels in eukaryotes evolved from a pore module precursor via gene fusions and gene duplications. Here we suggest that this pore… (More)
