Gene information for KCNJ8 (Homo sapiens)
(Information is obtained from NCBI Gene database)
Entrez gene ID3764
Official gene symbolKCNJ8
Full namepotassium inwardly-rectifying channel, subfamily J, member 8
Gene summaryPotassium channels are present in most mammalian cells, where they participate in a wide range of physiologic responses. The protein encoded by this gene is an integral membrane protein and inward-rectifier type potassium channel. The encoded protein, which has a greater tendency to allow potassium to flow into a cell rather than out of a cell, is controlled by G-proteins. [provided by RefSeq]
