Potassium voltage-gated channel subfamily V member 2 (Voltage-gated potassium channel subunit Kv8.2)
Voltage-gated K+ channels are important determinants of neuronal membrane excitability (Pongs, 1999). Moreover, differences in K+ channel expression patterns and densities contribute to the variations in action potential waveforms and repetitive firing patterns evident in different neuronal cell types. Members of the Kv5-Kv11 families code for “silent subunits” that do not express as functional homomultimers. In heterologous expression systems, silent subunits can coassemble with Kv2 and Kv3 subunits and modulate the biophysical characteristics of the latter subunits (Yan L. et al., 2004).
Fusion protein amino acids 1-163 (cytoplasmic N-terminus) of mouse Kv8.2 (also known as Potassium voltage-gated channel subfamily V member 2, Kcnv2 and rCG_63626, accession number Q8CFS6); Rat: 85% identity (138/163 amino acids identical); Human: 70% identity (115/164 amino acids identical)
