Large-Conductance Calcium-Activated Potassium Channels (Maxi-K Channels)

A major class of calcium activated potassium channels whose members are voltage-dependent. MaxiK channels are activated by either membrane depolarization or an increase in intracellular Ca(2+). They are key regulators of calcium and electrical signaling in a variety of tissues.
Also Known As:
