Voltage-Gated Potassium Channels (Voltage-Gated Potassium Channel) Summary

Description: Potassium channel whose permeability to ions is extremely sensitive to the transmembrane potential difference. The opening of these channels is induced by the membrane depolarization of the ACTION POTENTIAL.

Also Known As: Voltage-Gated Potassium Channel; Potassium Channel, Voltage-Gated; Potassium Channels, Voltage-Gated; Kv Potassium Channels; Voltage-Gated K+ Channels Show All >>
