Gene Family: Potassium voltage-gated channels

Also known as : "Kv"

Voltage-gated potassium channel: Voltage-gated potassium channels are transmembrane channels specific for potassium and sensitive to voltage changes in the cell's membrane potential. During action potentials, they play a crucial role in returning the depolarized cell to a resting state. [Source: Wikipedia]
