Data Sheet Data Sheet Data Sheet Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS)

TRESK (TWIK-related spinal cord K+ channel) functions as an outward rectifying potassium channel that generates K+ outward rectifier currents and sets resting membrane potential through operation as a background potassium channel. Activation is caused by the G-protein coupled receptor pathway, with calcium signals directly activating the channel via calcineurin.

TRESK has a prominent role in activating in vivo pain pathways and increased neuron excitability and is abundantly expressed in trigeminal and dorsal root ganglion neurons. Mutations in the KCNK18 gene have been associated with familial and sporadic migraines.
