GENE - TERM ANNOTATION REPORT

RGD ID: 2951
Species: Rattus norvegicus
RGD Object: Gene
Symbol: Kcna3
Name: potassium voltage-gated channel subfamily A member 3
Acc ID: GO:0001508
Term: action potential
Definition: A process in which membrane potential cycles through a depolarizing spike, triggered in response to depolarization above some threshold, followed by repolarization. This cycle is driven by the flow of ions through various voltage gated channels with different thresholds and ion specificities.
Definition Source(s): GOC:dph, GOC:go_curators, GOC:tb, ISBN:978-0-07-139011-8
Note: Use of the qualifier "multiple interactions" designates that the annotated interaction is comprised of a complex set of reactions and/or regulatory events, possibly involving additional chemicals and/or gene products.
