Gene: Kcnj8 (potassium inwardly-rectifying channel, subfamily J, member 8) Mus musculus
Analyze
Symbol: Kcnj8
Name: potassium inwardly-rectifying channel, subfamily J, member 8
Description: Predicted to have ATP binding activity; sulfonylurea receptor binding activity; and voltage-gated potassium channel activity. Involved in several processes, including defense response to virus; response to exogenous dsRNA; and response to lipopolysaccharide. Localizes to the myofibril. Used to study coronary artery disease. Is expressed in genitourinary system and heart. Orthologous to human KCNJ8 (potassium inwardly rectifying channel subfamily J member 8); PARTICIPATES IN acebutolol pharmacodynamics pathway; adrenergic beta receptor agonist and beta-blocker pharmacodynamics pathway; amiodarone pharmacodynamics pathway; INTERACTS WITH 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 4,4'-sulfonyldiphenol.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: AI448900; ATP-sensitive inward rectifier potassium channel 8; gnite; inward rectifier K(+) channel Kir6.1; inwardly rectifier K(+) channel Kir6.1; Kir6.1; potassium channel, inwardly rectifying subfamily J member 8; slmbr; sltr; uKATP-1
