    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; ATP-regulated K channel; pancreatic [beta]-cell oscillations; [alpha]-ketoisocaproate; long chain acyl-CoA esters; Kir6.2 SUR1 structure-function.;

    Abstract : ATP-sensitive K+ (KATP) channels are widely distributed in a variety of tissues and cell types. KATP channels are comprised of two subunits, a pore forming subunit (Kir6.x) and a regulatory sulfonylurea receptor (SURx). Both subunits are required for fully functional channels. READ MORE
