Gene: KCNJ10 (potassium voltage-gated channel subfamily J member 10) Homo sapiens
Symbol: KCNJ10
Name: potassium voltage-gated channel subfamily J member 10
Description: This gene encodes a member of the inward rectifier-type potassium channel family, characterized by having a greater tendency to allow potassium to flow into, rather than out of, a cell. The encoded protein may form a heterodimer with another potassium channel protein and may be responsible for the potassium buffering action of glial cells in the brain. Mutations in this gene have been associated with seizure susceptibility of common idiopathic generalized epilepsy syndromes. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
Type: protein-coding
