Article title: Sodium sensitivity of KNa channels in mouse CA1 neurons

Authors: Richard Gray and Daniel Johnston

From the authors: “The results of this study suggest that [sodium-activated potassium] channels are expressed in many different excitatory cell types, are relatively inactive at rest or with moderate levels of activity, and are tightly regulated by the [sodium/potassium] pump.” 

This study is highlighted as one of June’s “best of the best” as part of the American Physiological Society's APSselect program.
