KCND2

(redirected from voltage-gated potassium channel 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.

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].
