Protein

Potassium channel toxin alpha-KTx 1.1

Gene
N/A
Organism
Leiurus quinquestriatus hebraeus (Yellow scorpion)
Status
Reviewed - Annotation score: 5 out of 5- Experimental evidence at protein leveli

Functioni

Potent selective inhibitor of high conductance (maxi-K), different medium and small conductance calcium-activated potassium channels (KCa/KCNM), as well as a voltage-dependent potassium channel (Kv1.3/KCNA3). It appears to block channel activity by a simple bimolecular inhibition process.1 Publication
Has a pH-specific antimicrobial activity against bacteria (B.subtilis, E.coli and S.aureus) and the fungus C.albicans.1 Publication
