Abstract

The activity of potassium (K+) channels is intimately linked to several important transport functions in renal tubules. We review recent progress concerning the properties, site along the nephron, and physiological regulation of native K+ channels, and compare their characteristics with those of recently cloned K+ channels. We do not fully cover work on K+ channels in amphibian tubules, cell cultures, and single tubule cells and do not review K+ channels in mesangial cells.
