J Physiol 548:1-20. 2003..2 and/or Kv1.6 (also DTX-sensitive). DTX increased excitability further in the already hyperexcitable -/- MNTB neurons, suggesting that -/- IKL limited excitability despite its reduced amplitude in the absence of Kv1.1 subunits...
- Seizures and reduced life span in mice lacking the potassium channel subunit Kv1.2, but hypoexcitability and enlarged Kv1 currents in auditory neuronsHelen M Brew

J Neurophysiol 98:1501-25. 2007..If channel voltage dependence is determined by how many Kv1.2 subunits each contains, neurons might be able to fine-tune their excitability by adjusting the Kv1.1:Kv1.2 balance rather than altering Kv1 channel density...
