1. Briefly discuss an example of channel modulation that results in a change of membrane excitability - that is, the likelihood that a cell will fire an action potential and/or the frequency of action potentials a cell encodes in response to a given stimulus. 2. Each signaling pathway could potentially modulate many channels in a cell. Most

Unformatted text preview: channels can be modulated by several signaling pathways. Please briefly discuss an example of how channel modulation maintains a certain degree of specificity (e.g. a signaling pathway affecting channels within a distinct microdomain). The answer to each question shall not exceed 1 page (double space)....
