Drosophila Shaw encodes a voltage-insensitive, slowly activating, noninactivating K(+) current. The functional and developmental roles of this channel are unknown. In this study, we use a dominant transgenic strategy to investigate Shaw function and describe a second member of the Shaw family, Shawl. In situ hybridization showed that the two Shaw family genes, Shaw and Shawl, have largely nonoverlapping expression patterns in embryos. Shaw is expressed mainly in excitable cells of the CNS and… CONTINUE READING
