- adj. Of or pertaining to a homomer
Sorry, no etymologies found.
Remarkably, the interaction of KCNQ2/Q3 heteromeric channels with syntaxin 1A was significantly weaker and KCNQ3 homomeric channels were practically resistant to syntaxin 1A.
In the present study, we demonstrate that syntaxin 1A also associates with KCNQ2 subunits in the brain, leading to modulation of KCNQ2 homomeric channel gating in oocytes.
Therefore, it is possible that syntaxin 1A affected only homomeric KCNQ2 channels within a mixture that consisted of high percentage of KCNQ2/3 channels.
Compared to α-syn homomeric species composed of the same number of α-syn molecules, hybrid Aβ / α-syn multimers were more stable and had more favorable (lower) electrostatic energies of interaction.
