Abstract

Multiple Na+ channel types, differing in functional properties, have been identified in the nervous system. The role of distinct α subunits in generating this functional diversity is discussed in light of the recent finding that the β1 subunit modulates Na+ channel function. Possible mechanisms involved in the regulation of the genes coding for the different subunits are also discussed.
