KCND1

A gene on chromosome Xp11.23 that encodes a member of the voltage-gated, shal-related subfamily of potassium channels, which form voltage-activated A-type ion channels and are involved in the repolarisation phase of action potentials.

[sup][10] The BKCa channel consists of four a subunits and an accessory [sz] subunit, and the Kv4.x channels in human include three subtypes (Kv4.1, Kv4.2, and Kv4.3).
[sup][4] Suzuki and Takimoto [sup][14] found that Kv4.2 levels increased before labor, whereas Kv4.1 and Kv4.3 declined, suggesting that these ion channels might be involved in controlling the contractility of MSMCs during gestation.
