International Union of Pharmacology. XLII. Compendium of voltage-gated ion channels: cyclic nucleotide-modulated channels

Pharmacol Rev. 2003 Dec;55(4):587-9. doi: 10.1124/pr.55.4.10.


This summary article presents an overview of the molecular relationships among the voltage-gated cyclic nucleotide-modulated channels and a standard nomenclature for them, which is derived from the IUPHAR Compendium of Voltage-Gated Ion Channels. The complete Compendium, including data tables for each member of the cyclic nucleotide-modulated channel family can be found at
