QuickView for KCNJ6 (gene)


Gene Symbol:
KCNJ6 Homo sapiens Homo sapiens
Full name:
potassium voltage-gated channel subfamily J member 6
Synonyms:
BIR1, GIRK-2, GIRK2, KATP-2, KATP2, KCNJ7, KIR3.2, KPLBS, hiGIRK2, G protein-activated inward rectifier potassium channel 2, inward rectifier K(+) channel Kir3.2, inward rectifier potassium channel KIR3.2, potassium channel, inwardly rectifying subfamily J, member 6
Genomic Location:
Chr 21: 37918655-38210566
Description:
This gene encodes a member of the G protein-coupled inwardly-rectifying potassium channel family of inward rectifier potassium channels. This type of potassium channel allows a greater flow of potassium into the cell than out of it. These proteins modulate many physiological processes, including heart rate in cardiac cells and circuit activity in n...
