Protein

Potassium channel toxin alpha-KTx 6.4

Gene
N/A
Organism
Pandinus imperator (Emperor scorpion)
Status
Reviewed - Annotation score: 4 out of 5- Experimental evidence at protein leveli

Functioni

Potently, completely and reversibly blocks voltage-gated potassium channel Kv1.2/KCNA2 and Shaker B (Sh). Also blocks small conductance (SK) calcium-activated potassium channel (KCNN).1 Publication
