Gene: KCNK1 (potassium two pore domain channel subfamily K member 1) Homo sapiens
Symbol: KCNK1
Name: potassium two pore domain channel subfamily K member 1
Description: Exhibits identical protein binding activity; potassium ion leak channel activity; and sodium channel activity. Involved in potassium ion transmembrane transport; regulation of resting membrane potential; and sodium ion transmembrane transport. Localizes to integral component of plasma membrane; intracellular membrane-bounded organelle; and potassium channel complex.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: DPK; HOHO; inward rectifying potassium channel protein TWIK-1; K2P1; K2p1.1; KCNO1; potassium channel K2P1; potassium channel KCNO1; potassium channel subfamily K member 1; potassium channel, two pore domain subfamily K, member 1; potassium inwardly-rectifying channel, subfamily K, member 1; tandem of P domains in a weak inward rectifying K+ channel 1; TWIK-1; TWIK1
