They repolarize nerve cell action potentials. There are many types of potassium channel proteins, and potassium channels allow potassium ions to specifically pass through the cell membrane, thereby maintaining the resting potential of nerve cells.

Changes in K(+) channel function have been associated with cardiac hypertrophy, cardiac arrhythmias and failure, apoptosis and oncogenesis, and various neurodegenerative and neuromuscular disorders.

Loss of the modulatory channels is tightly associated with a number of brain diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, epilepsy, fragile X syndrome (FXS), Parkinson’s disease, chronic pain, tinnitus, and ataxia.

Approximately 50% of permanent neonatal diabetes mellitus are associated with β-cell potassium channel defects.

Downregulation of potassium signaling results in hyperexcitability.

Permeability enhancement of the KcsA (Potassium) channel under radiation of a terahertz wave (Study)

“Potassium ion channels are essential elements in cellular electrical excitability and help maintain a resting potential in nonexcitable cells. Their universality is based on a unique combination of strong selectivity for K^{+} ions and near-diffusion-limited permeation efficiency. Understanding how the channel regulates the ion conduction would be instructive to the treatment of ion channelopathies. In this work, by means of molecular dynamics simulations, we demonstrate the significantly enhanced permeation of KcsA channel in reaction to an external terahertz wave, due to the effective response of the K^{+} ions in the selectivity filter regions of the channel. Compared to the case without external terahertz wave, a fourfold increase in the ion current through the channel is found.”

In other words, the WAVE of LIFE Terahertz Frequency increases Potassium channel function FOUR-FOLD!
