Nav1.1 Na+ channel (sodium channel, voltage-gated, type I, alpha subunit/ SCN1A) is a member of voltage-gated sodium ion channel subunit family. It is encoded by gene Scn1a in human.The channel switches between open and close conformation in response to the voltage difference accross the membrane. Nav1.1 Na+ channel is a sodium selective channel that maintains Na+ homeostasis by allowing Na+ ions to pass in accordance of their electrochemical gradient. The protein plays an important role in the release of neurotransmittors from the neurons. Therefore, Nav1.1 Na+ channel is involved in the perception of mechanical pain due to the activation of sematosensory neurons without the involvement of inflammation. Mutation of the gene encoding for Nav1.1 Na+ channel is one of the main cause of epilepsy and febrile seizures.
