TREK 1 (KCNK2 or two pore potassium channel TPKC1) belongs to two pore domain potassium channel (TC 1.A.1.8) family and it is a TWIK related K+ channel that acts as a background channel producing time/voltage-independent background current which drives the membrane potential toward the K+ equilibrium potential thereby affecting input resistance. TREK1 is characterized by mechanosensitivity, heat sensitivity, G-protein regulation, and activation by lipids, arachidonic acid, and volatile anesthetics such as chloroform, halothane and isoflurane. TREK1 is widely expressed in brain and genetic ablation has revealed involvement of this channel in depression, neuroprotection, pain perception, and ischemia-precipitated epilepsy. TREK1 gene inactivation produces mice with decreased sensitivity to volatile anesthetics, impaired PUFA-mediated neuroprotection and altered pain perception, depression-resistant phenotype and alteration in the efficacy of GPCR-associated cascade producing NO that leads to major endothelial dysfunction.
