Fast N-type inactivation of voltage-dependent potassium (Kv) channels controls membrane excitability and signal propagation in central neurons and occurs by a 'ball-and-chain'-type mechanism. In this mechanism an N-terminal protein domain (inactivation gate) occludes the pore from the cytoplasmic side. In Kv3.4 channels, inactivation is not fixed but is dynamically regulated by protein ...
