Gene : KCNJ16 Homo sapiens

Name  ? potassium voltage-gated channel subfamily J member 16 Cytological Location  17q24.3
Brief Description  potassium voltage-gated channel subfamily J member 16
description  Potassium channels are present in most mammalian cells, where they participate in a wide range of physiologic responses. The protein encoded by this gene is an integral membrane protein and inward-rectifier type potassium channel. The encoded protein, which tends to allow potassium to flow into rather than out of a cell, can form heterodimers with two other inward-rectifier type potassium channels. It may function in fluid and pH balance regulation. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Apr 2014]
