N-terminal disordered regions control inactivation of potassium channels. The mechanism of inactivation is different for BK channel versus Shaker channels. The former populates an O* state that shows intermediate activity. Adaptation of existing phenomenological models for coupled folding and binding explains channel-specific differences in N-type inactivation through disordered regions.
