Protein kinase A acts to antagonize voltage-gated potassium channels (Kv channels) by increasing the polarizing voltage required to open them. Maintenance of the Kv channels in the closed state prolongs depolarization and insulin secretion. The exact mechanism of the interaction between PKA and the Kv channels is unknown.
