Term Name: clustering of voltage-gated sodium channels Search Ontology:
Synonyms:
  • clustering of voltage gated sodium channels
  • clustering of voltage-dependent sodium channels
  • Nav channel clustering
  • voltage-gated sodium channel clustering
Definition: The process in which voltage-gated sodium channels become localized together in high densities. In animals, nodes of Ranvier differ dramatically from internodal axonal regions in very high densities of voltage-dependent sodium (Nav) channels responsible for the rapid, inward ionic currents that produce membrane depolarization. 11456440
