25001086 TWIK-1 protein possesses a hydrophobic barrier deep within the inner pore
22282804 study presents the 3.4 angstrom resolution crystal structure of a human K2P channel, K2P1; an extracellular cap domain located above the selectivity filter forms an ion pathway in which K(+) ions flow through side portals
21964404 Potassium channels, in particular K2P channels, are expressed and functional in the apical membrane of airway epithelial cells
21653227 ion selectivity of TWIK-1 K+ channels during pathological hypokalemia; a molecular basis for inward leak Na+ currents that could trigger or contribute to cardiac paradoxical depolarization in lowered [K+]o; mechanism for regulating cardiac excitability.
19959478 TWIK1 is internalized via a dynamin-dependent mechanism and addressed to the recycling endosomal compartment. Mutation in its cytoplasmic C terminus (I293A,I294A) stabilizes TWIK1 at the plasma membrane, resulting in robust currents.
19948975 Observational study of gene-disease association, gene-gene interaction, gene-environment interaction, and genetic testing. (HuGE Navigator)
19571146 support TWIK-1 and TREK-1 as being the major components of the long-sought K(+) channels underlying the passive conductance of mature hippocampal astrocytes
15820677 Removal of the peptide adduct by SUMO protease reveals K2P1 to be a K+-selective, pH-sensitive, openly rectifying channel regulated by reversible peptide linkage.
