Kcnq1-5 (Kv7.1-5) potassium channel expression in the adult zebrafish.
In Bmc Physiol, 20 Mar 2014
BACKGROUND: KCNQx genes encode slowly activating-inactivating K+ channels, are linked to physiological signal transduction pathways, and mutations in them underlie diseases such as long QT syndrome (KCNQ1), epilepsy in adults (KCNQ2/3), benign familial neonatal convulsions in children (KCNQ3), and hearing loss or tinnitus in humans (KCNQ4, but not KCNQ5).
Epilepsy and the new cytogenetics.

Multiplex ligase-dependent probe amplification (MLPA) targeted to predetermined regions such as SCN1A and KCNQ2 has been effectively applied over the last half a decade, and oligonucleotide array comparative genome hybridization (array CGH) is now well established for genome-wide exploration of microchromosomal variation.
