Recently, a class of potassium (K) channels has been discovered which are regulated by the intracellular level of ATP. These channels have been termed ATP dependent K channels (KATP) and have been found to exist in the heart, skeletal muscle, pancreatic beta cells, brain, and smooth muscle. In this article, we discuss the function of the KATP channel in the… CONTINUE READING
