1.A.1.9.6
The pH-sensitive 2 pore (4 TMS) K+ channel, TASK-4 (Expressed in liver, lung, pancreas and other tissues; Decher et al., 2001). The response of the tandem pore potassium channel TASK-3 (K(2P)9.1) to voltage involves gating at the cytoplasmic mouth (Ashmole et al., 2009). Models have revealed the convergence of amino acid regions that are known to modulate anesthetic activity onto a common three- dimensional cavity that forms a putative anesthetic binding site in tandem pore potassium channels (Bertaccini et al. 2014).
