Objective: Kv10.1, a voltage gated potassium channel is natively expressed in the brain, where it likely participates in control of cell excitability. Additionally, it is implicated in malignant transformation and tumor progression in many cancer cell lines and human malignancies. Previous few reports[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
