We Are Among the Chosen
Our recent article in the FEBS Journal (Volume 282, issue 12), was selected by its editor as the Editor's Choice paper for that issue. The article describes some custom peptide synthesis efforts to design selective Kv1.3 channel-blocking peptides based on the ShK peptide. This publication will also feature a short podcast highlighting some of the interesting results from our efforts. This work is a continuation of our long time collaboration between Dr. Mike Pennington with Dr. Ray S. Norton from Monash University and Dr. Christine Beeton from Baylor College of Medicine, which is funded by NIH grant NS073712.
