cle weakness and low serum potassium levels. It is caused be a genetic mutation in protein channels that pump calcium or sodium ions across the cell membrane, but it is unclear exactly how the calcium channel mutations cause muscle weakness. In this issue of the Journal of Clinical Investigation, researchers led by Stephen Cannon at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center created a mouse with the HypoPP-associated calcium channel mutation that had symptoms that were similar to human HypoPP. They found that the mutant calcium channel caused changes in the cellular membrane potential that altered the ability of the muscle fibers to contract. This study explains how an inherited mutation causes HypoPP in humans. In a companion commentary, Alfred George of Vanderbilt University discusses how inherited mutations in channels contribute to human disease.
