Human hERG Potassium Channel EZCells™ by ChanTest Corporation

The KCNH2 gene encodes the pore-forming subunit of a voltage-gated potassium channel. HERG channels expressed in cardiac muscle cells are safety targets; hERG inhibition has been linked to drug induced prolongation of the QT interval and torsade de pointes (a potentially lethal cardiac arrhythmia). Synonyms: Kv11.1 Host cell: CHO-K1, division-arrested Gene name: KCNH2 Mycoplasma status: Negative (MycoAlert Kit) Packaging: Three vials of Cryopreserved irradiated cells, 2x106 cells/vial (6x106 ce...
