KCNQ Potassium Channels and C. elegans Pharyngeal Pumping: A Genetic and Behavioral Model for Cardiac Arrhythmia
Yoanne M. Clovis, Ph.D. | Humans have over 70 potassium channel genes, but only some of these have been linked to disease. In this respect, the KCNQ family of potassium channels is exceptional: mutations in four out of five KCNQ genes underlie diseases including cardiac arrhythmias, deafness, and epilepsy. In this technical note, we investigated the effect of mutations of orthologous KCNQ-like genes in the nematode C. elegans on electrical excitability using the NemaMetrix ScreenChip System.
