KCND2

(redirected from Kv4.2)

KCND2

A gene on chromosome 7q31 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. KCND2 mediates a rapidly inactivating, A-type outward potassium current.

The effects on E-LTP may be ascribed to ERK regulation of the Kv4.2 channel, which leads to a reduction in its conductance properties, and in turn, an increase in hippocampal cellular excitability [147, 148].
Similarly, estrogen can exert rapid regulation of potassium and calcium channels in neurons by activation of estrogen receptors to regulate the neuronal activities [88] and inhibit the epileptiform bursting activities in cultured hippocampal neurons by activation of the voltage-gated potassium channel Kv4.2 [91].
