Prokaryotic K(+) channels: from crystal structures to diversity.


The deep roots and wide branches of the K(+)-channel family are evident from genome surveys and laboratory experimentation. K(+)-channel genes are widespread and found in nearly all the free-living bacteria, archaea and eukarya. The conservation of basic structures and mechanisms such as the K(+) filter, the gate, and some of the gate's regulatory domains… (More)
