Gene: Kcnh2 (potassium voltage-gated channel, subfamily H (eag-related), member 2) Mus musculus
Symbol: Kcnh2
Name: potassium voltage-gated channel, subfamily H (eag-related), member 2
Description: Exhibits inward rectifier potassium channel activity. Involved in potassium ion transmembrane transport; regulation of heart rate by cardiac conduction; and regulation of ventricular cardiac muscle cell membrane repolarization. Localizes to cytoplasm; nuclear envelope; and plasma membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including brain; early conceptus; gonad; heart; and retina. Used to study short QT syndrome. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in long QT syndrome; long QT syndrome 2; and short QT syndrome. Orthologous to human KCNH2 (potassium voltage-gated channel subfamily H member 2); PARTICIPATES IN acebutolol pharmacodynamics pathway; adrenergic beta receptor agonist and beta-blocker pharmacodynamics pathway; amiodarone pharmacodynamics pathway; INTERACTS WITH (S)-nicotine; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
