Protein

Potassium channel toxin alpha-KTx 6.1

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

Functioni

Potently and reversibly inhibits the insect voltage-gated Shaker (Sh) potassium channel (isoform alpha (B)), the mammalian voltage-gated potassium channels Kv1.2/KCNA2. Its effect on Kv1.3/KCNA3 is controversial, since this channel is voltage-independently inhibited in PubMed:9464266, but is not affected in PubMed:10931199. Furthermore, this toxin competes with apamin (a small conductance calcium-activated potassium channel inhibitor) for binding onto rat brain synaptosomes.4 Publications

Family & Domainsi

Domaini

Has the structural arrangement of an alpha-helix connected to a beta-sheet by disulfide bonds (CSalpha/beta).
The alpha-helical domain may play a key role in the recognition of SK channels.
The beta-sheet structure may be involved in bioactivity on Kv channels.
