Two-pore domain k(+) channels and their role in chemoreception.

Abstract:

A number of tandem P-domain K(+)- channels (K(2)P) generate background K(+)-currents similar to those found in enteroreceptors that sense a diverse range of physiological stimuli including blood pH, carbon dioxide, oxygen, potassium and glucose. This review presents an overview of the properties of both cloned K(2)P tandem-P-domain K-channels and the endogenous chemosensitive background K-currents found in central chemoreceptors, peripheral chemoreceptors, the adrenal gland and the hypothalam...
