Isaacs' syndrome is a rare neuromuscular disorder, characterized by hyperexcitability of the peripheral nerves and continuous activation of muscle fibers, due to auto-antibodies directed against the voltage-gated potassium channels

structures are classified as voltage-dependent (Kv), calcium-dependent, inward rectifier, and two-pore according to their functions and pharmacological effects (29, 30).
However, the activities of [I.sub.K] are dependent not only on expression levels of the potassium channel
, but also on the phosphorylation status of the channels (25).

Possible explanations for these contradictory findings could be related to age of the animals, since age influences calcium-activated potassium channels
and voltage-activated potassium channel

For example, progesterone at micromolar concentrations directly blocks the voltage-dependent calcium channel that triggers neurotransmitter release to alleviate the neurotoxicity in the brain  and the therapeutic concentrations can block the voltage-gated potassium channel
