Symbol: Kcna5
Name: potassium voltage-gated channel subfamily A member 5
Description: ENCODES a protein that exhibits delayed rectifier potassium channel activity; outward rectifier potassium channel activity; signaling receptor binding; INVOLVED IN negative regulation of cytosolic calcium ion concentration; positive regulation of G1/S transition of mitotic cell cycle; positive regulation of myoblast proliferation; PARTICIPATES IN acebutolol pharmacodynamics pathway; adrenergic beta receptor agonist and beta-blocker pharmacodynamics pathway; amiodarone pharmacodynamics pathway; ASSOCIATED WITH Diabetes Mellitus, Experimental ; Experimental Autoimmune Myocarditis; hypertension; FOUND IN endoplasmic reticulum; Golgi apparatus; integral component of plasma membrane; INTERACTS WITH (5Z,8Z,11Z,13E)-15-HETE; amiodarone; ammonium chloride
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: Kv1; Kv1.5; potassium (K+) channel protein alpha 5; potassium channel, voltage gated shaker related subfamily A, member 5; potassium voltage gated channel shaker related subfamily member 5; potassium voltage gated channel, shaker related subfamily, member 5; potassium voltage-gated channel, shaker-related subfamily, member 5; RCK7; RK4; voltage-gated potassium channel subunit Kv1.5
