FunctionMediates the voltage-dependent potassium ion permeability of excitable membranes. Assuming opened or closed conformations in response to the voltage difference across the membrane, the protein forms a potassium-selective channel through which potassium ions may pass in accordance with their electrochemical gradient.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in KCNA1 are the cause of episodic ataxia type 1 (EA1) [MIM:160120]; also known as paroxysmal or episodic ataxia with myokymia (EAM) or paroxysmal ataxia with neuromyotonia. EA1 is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by brief episodes of ataxia and dysarthria. Neurological examination during and between the attacks demonstrates spontaneous, repetitive discharges in the distal musculature (myokymia) that arise from peripheral nerve. Nystagmus is absent.
Defects in KCNA1 are the cause of myokymia isolated type 1 (MK1) [MIM:160120]. Myokymia is a condition characterized by spontaneous involuntary contraction of muscle fiber groups that can be observed as vermiform movement of the overlying skin. Electromyography typically shows continuous motor unit activity with spontaneous oligo- and multiplet-discharges of high intraburst frequency (myokymic discharges). Isolated spontaneous muscle twitches occur in many persons and have no grave significance.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the potassium channel family. A (Shaker) (TC 1.A.1.2) subfamily. Kv1.1/KCNA1 sub-subfamily.
DomainThe N-terminus may be important in determining the rate of inactivation of the channel while the tail may play a role in modulation of channel activity and/or targeting of the channel to specific subcellular compartments.
The segment S4 is probably the voltage-sensor and is characterized by a series of positively charged amino acids at every third position.
modificationsPalmitoylated on Cys-243; which may be required for membrane targeting.
