Gene: Kcnj5 (potassium voltage-gated channel subfamily J member 5) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Kcnj5
Name: potassium voltage-gated channel subfamily J member 5
Description: ENCODES a protein that exhibits inward rectifier potassium channel activity (ortholog); voltage-gated potassium channel activity involved in atrial cardiac muscle cell action potential repolarization (ortholog); INVOLVED IN membrane repolarization during atrial cardiac muscle cell action potential (ortholog); potassium ion import across plasma membrane (ortholog); regulation of heart rate by cardiac conduction (ortholog); PARTICIPATES IN acebutolol pharmacodynamics pathway; adrenergic beta receptor agonist and beta-blocker pharmacodynamics pathway; amiodarone pharmacodynamics pathway; ASSOCIATED WITH adenoma (ortholog); Andersen-Tawil syndrome (ortholog); atrial fibrillation (ortholog); FOUND IN external side of plasma membrane; T-tubule; voltage-gated potassium channel complex (ortholog); INTERACTS WITH 2,6-dinitrotoluene; alpha-hexachlorocyclohexane; ammonium chloride
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: cardiac inward rectifier; CIR; G protein-activated inward rectifier potassium channel 4; GIRK-4; GIRK4; heart KATP channel; inward rectifier K(+) channel Kir3.4; KATP-1; MGC93525; potassium channel, inwardly rectifying subfamily J member 5; potassium channel, inwardly rectifying subfamily J, member 5; potassium inwardly-rectifying channel, subfamily J, member 5
