Abstract

The complex processing and integration of signals observed in neurons are facilitated by the diverse range of gating properties of the ion channels in this cell type, particularly the voltage- gated K+ channels (KV). A distinctive combination of K+ channels endows neurons with a broad repertoire of excitable properties and allows each neuron to respond in a specific manner to a given input at a given time. The properties of many K+ channels can be modulated by second messenger pathways activated by neurotransmitters and other stimuli. K+ channels are among the most frequent targets of the actions of several signalling systems.
