Our research is focused on the molecular study of potassium selective ionic channels that regulate cell excitability. In humans, mutations of these proteins cause arrhythmia, epilepsy and deafness, depending on the isoform affected and their distribution within the tissue. Our objective is to identify the network of proteins associated with these channels, by analyzing the physiological consequences of these interactions through mutagenesis function studies, and the use of ...
