Human Mouse Rat
Nav1.6 Na+ channel (sodium channel, voltage-gated, type 8, alpha subunit/ SCN8A) is a member of voltage-gated sodium ion channel subunit family. It is encoded by gene Scn8a in human.The channel switches between open and close conformation in response to the voltage difference accross the membrane. Nav1.6 Na+ channel is located at the nodes of Ranvier. It heavily participates in the regulation of nerve conduction velocity. It has been shown that Nav1.6 Na+ channel loss in roddents induces paralysis due to the failure of the neuromuscular junction (Wagnon et al., 2016).
