Gene: Kcnh3 (potassium voltage-gated channel, subfamily H (eag-related), member 3) Mus musculus
Symbol: Kcnh3
Name: potassium voltage-gated channel, subfamily H (eag-related), member 3
Description: The protein encoded by this gene is a voltage-gated potassium channel alpha subunit predominantly expressed in the forebrain. An increase in cognitive function was observed when this gene was knocked out, while deletion of the gene resulted in hippocampal hyperexcitability and epilepsy. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2015]
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: AU019351; C030044P22Rik; ELK channel 2; Elk2; ether a go-go like; ether-a-go-go-like potassium channel 2; Kv12.2; Melk2; potassium voltage-gated channel subfamily H member 3; voltage-gated potassium channel subunit Kv12.2
