Gene: KCNC1 (potassium voltage-gated channel subfamily C member 1) Homo sapiens
Symbol: KCNC1
Name: potassium voltage-gated channel subfamily C member 1
Description: This gene encodes a member of a family of integral membrane proteins that mediate the voltage-dependent potassium ion permeability of excitable membranes. Alternative splicing is thought to result in two transcript variants encoding isoforms that differ at their C-termini. These isoforms have had conflicting names in the literature: the longer isoform has been called both "b" and "alpha", while the shorter isoform has been called both "a" and "beta" (PMIDs 1432046, 12091563).
