High impact information on Task7

  • Following cotransfection of dTASK-6 and wildtype dTASK-7 (or when engineered as concatemers), K(+) currents were observed that were smaller in amplitude, harbored slower activation kinetics and were considerably less inhibited by local anesthetics as compared with dTASK-6 [1].

Other interactions of Task7

  • Nonfunctional wildtype dTASK-7 channels appeared to form heteromeric assemblies with dTASK-6 [1].
