Target Description:

Calcium-activated potassium channel subunit alpha-1, Potassium Calcium-Activated Channel Subfamily M Alpha 1 or Slo1/BKalpha is encoded by the gene KCNMA1. BKalpha binds to one of 4 different beta subunits to form a channel in the calcium activated large conductance (MaxiK channel) family. This potassium channel is activated by membrane depolarization or an increase in cytosolic ca2+ and mediated the export of K+. BKalpha is involved with various cell processes including contraction of smooth muscle, regulation of transmitter release, innate immunity and regulation of membrane potential. Diseases associated with KCNMA1 include forms of Epilepsy and Developmental Delay Cerebellar Atrophy and Seizures.
