Taste receptor cells express pH-sensitive leak K+ channels.
Aurora, United States. In J Neurophysiol, 2004
We report here that rat taste receptor cells (TRCs) highly express TASK-2 (KCNK5; K2p5.1), and to a much lesser extent TALK-1 (KCNK16; K2p16.1) and TASK-1 (KCNK3; K2p3.1), and suggest potentially important roles for these channels in setting resting membrane potentials and in sour taste transduction.
Single-channel properties and pH sensitivity of two-pore domain K+ channels of the TALK family.
North Chicago, United States. In Biochem Biophys Res Commun, 2004
The two-pore K2P channel family comprises TASK, TREK, TWIK, TRESK, TALK, and THIK subfamilies, and TALK-1, TALK-2, and TASK-2 are functional members of the TALK subfamily.
