VGKCs are a family of voltage- gated potassium channels & are membrane proteins - Leucine- rich glioma inactivated protein 1(LGI1) & Contactin- associated protein 2 (CASPR2), responsible for controlling the cell membrane potential. These antigens play a direct or indirect role in synaptic signal transduction and plasticity, the associated autoimmunities, manifest with seizures and neuropsychiatric symptoms.
