Regulation of human T lymphocyte potassium channel function by intracellular second messengers ? role of calcium, cyclic AMP and membrane lipid metabolities
Languages of publication
This review focuses on the influence of well-known intracellular second messengers on the activity of potassium channels expressed in human T lymphocytes. Basic biophysical properties of the channels are briefly presented. Available data on the regulatory role of intracellular calcium and cyclic AMP is reviewed. Finally, a possible influence of lipid compounds, especially high-density lipoproteins, lysophospholipids and sphingolipids, on the expression and activity of potassium channels in human T lymphocytes is discussed.
