KCNJ15/Kir4.2 couples with polyamines to sense weak extracellular electric fields in galvanotaxis....
Published in Nature Communications
Weak electric fields guide cell migration, known as galvanotaxis/electrotaxis. The sensor(s) cells use to detect the fields remain elusive. Here we perform a large-scale screen using an RNAi library targeting ion transporters in human cells. We identify 18 genes that show either defective or increased galvanotaxis after knockdown. Knockdown of the ...
