Potassium channel toxin alpha-KTx 3.10

Gene
N/A
Organism
Buthus occitanus israelis (Common yellow scorpion)
Status
Reviewed-Annotation score: Annotation score: 3 out of 5-Experimental evidence at protein leveli

Functioni

Inhibits insect potassium channel. Is at least a hundred-fold more potent against the Drosophila Shaker channel than towards its mammalian homologs Kv1.1/KCNA1 and Kv1.3/KCNA3.1 Publication

Miscellaneous

Mammalian potassium channels (Kv2.1/KCNB1, Kir1.1/KCNJ1, Kv3.4/KCNC4, Kv4.2/KCND2, Kv7.1/KCNQ1, Kv7.2/KCNQ2, Kv7.3/KCNQ3 and Kv11.1/KCNH2) are even less affected by this toxin.1 Publication

Links to similar proteins from the UniProt Reference Clusters (UniRef) at 100%, 90% and 50% sequence identity:
100%UniRef100 combines identical sequences and sub-fragments with 11 or more residues from any organism into one UniRef entry.
90%UniRef90 is built by clustering UniRef100 sequences that have at least 90% sequence identity to, and 80% overlap with, the longest sequence (a.k.a seed sequence).
50%UniRef50 is built by clustering UniRef90 seed sequences that have at least 50% sequence identity to, and 80% overlap with, the longest sequence in the cluster.
