Gene: Kcna6 (potassium voltage-gated channel subfamily A member 6) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Kcna6
Name: potassium voltage-gated channel subfamily A member 6
RGD ID: 62083
Description: Exhibits delayed rectifier potassium channel activity. Involved in potassium ion transmembrane transport. Localizes to voltage-gated potassium channel complex. Orthologous to human KCNA6 (potassium voltage-gated channel subfamily A member 6); INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-Tetrachlorodibenzofuran; ammonium chloride; bisphenol A.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: Kv1.6; kv2; potassium channel, voltage gated shaker related subfamily A, member 6; potassium channel-Kv2; potassium voltage gated channel shaker related subfamily member 6; potassium voltage gated channel, shaker related subfamily, member 6; RCK2; voltage-gated potassium channel subunit Kv1.6; voltage-gated potassium channel subunit Kv2
