Mutations in KCNH1 and ATP6V1B2 cause Zimmermann-Laband syndrome.
Zimmermann-Laband syndrome (ZLS) is a developmental disorder characterized by facial dysmorphism with gingival enlargement, intellectual disability, hypoplasia or aplasia of nails and terminal phalanges, and hypertrichosis. We report that heterozygou

Pharmacogenetic and case-control study on potassium channel related gene variants and genetic generalized epilepsy.
Potassium channels are the targets of antiepileptic drugs (AEDs), which play important roles in the etiology of epilepsy. KCNA1 and KCNA2 encode mammalian Kv1.1 and Kv1.2 channels, which are essential roles in the initiation and shaping of action pot

Potassium channel genes and benign familial neonatal epilepsy.
Several potassium channel genes have been implicated in different neurological disorders including genetic and acquired epilepsy. Among them, KCNQ2 and KCNQ3, coding for KV7.2 and KV7.3 voltage-gated potassium channels, present an example how genetic

Potassium channel agonists cause penile erection in cats.
Using a feline model, erections caused by a new class of vasodilator agents that specifically activate potassium (K+-ATP) channels (lemakalim, nicorandil, and pinacidil) were compared to baseline and maximal erections induced by a standard drug combi

The role of calcium channel mutations in human epilepsy.
Molecular insights into monogenic idiopathic epilepsies have illustrated the central role of channelopathies in their etiology. Among ion channels, both high- and low-voltage-activated calcium channels and their ancillary subunits Cav2.1 (P/Q-type) c

Exonic mutations in the SLC12A3 gene cause exon skipping and premature termination in Gitelman syndrome.
A variety of genetic backgrounds cause the loss of function of thiazide-sensitive sodium chloride cotransporter, encoded by SLC12A3, responsible for the phenotypes in Gitelman syndrome. Recently, the phenomenon of exon skipping, in which exonic mutat

Mutations in CKAP2L, the human homolog of the mouse Radmis gene, cause Filippi syndrome.
Filippi syndrome is a rare, presumably autosomal-recessive disorder characterized by microcephaly, pre- and postnatal growth failure, syndactyly, and distinctive facial features, including a broad nasal bridge and underdeveloped alae nasi. Some affec

De Novo Mutations in YWHAG Cause Early-Onset Epilepsy.
Massively parallel sequencing has revealed many de novo mutations in the etiology of developmental and epileptic encephalopathies (EEs), highlighting their genetic heterogeneity. Additional candidate genes have been prioritized in silico by their co-

Q3 Potassium Channel Openers for the Treatment of Epilepsy.
A series of N-pyridyl benzamide KCNQ2/Q3 potassium channel openers were identified and found to be active in animal models of epilepsy and pain. The best compound 12 [ICA-027243, N-(6-chloro-pyridin-3-yl)-3,4-difluoro-benzamide] has an EC50 of 0.38 μ
