|摘要:||Apamin-sensitive small-conductance Ca2+ activated K+ (SK) current (I-KAS) is encoded by Ca2+ -activated K+ channel subfamily N (KCNN) genes. I-KAS importantly contributes to cardiac repolarization in conditions associated with reduced repolarization reserve. To test the hypothesis that I-KAS inhibition contributes to drug-induced long QT syndrome (diLQTS), we screened for KCNN variants among patients with diLQTS, determined the properties of heterologously expressed wild-type (WI) and variant KCNN channels. and determined if the 5-HT3 receptor antagonist ondansetron blocks I-KAS. We searched 2,306.335 records in the Indiana Network for Patient Care and found 11 patients with diLQTS who had DNA available in the Indiana Biobank. DNA sequencing discovered a heterozygous KCNN2 variant (p.F503L) in a 52-yr-old woman presenting with corrected QT interval prolongation at baseline (473 ms) and further corrected QT interval lengthening (601 ms) after oral administration of ondansetron. That patient was also heterozygous for the p.S38G and p.P2835S variants of the QT-controlling genes KCNEI and ankyrin 2, respectively. Patch-clamp experiments revealed that the p.F503L KCNN2 valiant heterologously expressed in human embryonic kidney (HEK)-293 cells augmented Ca2+ sensitivity, increasing I KAS density. The fraction of total F503L-KCNN2 protein retained in the membrane was higher than that of WT KCNN2 protein. Ondansetron at nanomolar concentrations inhibited WI and p.F503L SK2 channels expressed in HEK-293 cells as well as native SK channels in ventricular cardiomyocytes. Ondansetron-induced I-KAS inhibition was also demonstrated in Langendorff-perfused murine hearts. In conclusion, the heterozygous p.F5031. KCNN2 variant increases Ca2+ sensitivity and I-KAS density in transfected HEK-293 cells. Ondansetron at therapeutic (i.e., nanomolar) concentrations is a potent I-KAS blocker. NEW & NOTEWORTHY We showed that ondansetron, a 5-HT3 receptor antagonist, blocks small-conductance Ca2+-activated K+ (SK) current. Ondansetron may be useful in controlling arrhythmias in which increased SK current is a likely contributor. However, its SK-blocking effects may also facilitate the development of druginduced long QT syndrome.|
