Gene: KCNE5 (potassium voltage-gated channel subfamily E regulatory subunit 5) Homo sapiens
Symbol: KCNE5
Name: potassium voltage-gated channel subfamily E regulatory subunit 5
Description: This gene encodes a member of a family of single pass transmembrane domain proteins that function as ancillary subunits to voltage-gated potassium channels. Members of this family affect diverse processes in potassium channel regulation, including ion selectivity, voltage dependence, and anterograde recycling from the plasma membrane. Variants of this gene are associated with idiopathic ventricular fibrillation and Brugada syndrome. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2016]
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: AMME syndrome candidate gene 2 protein; AMMECR2 protein; cardiac voltage-gated potassium channel accessory subunit 5; KCNE1-like; KCNE1L; potassium channel subunit beta MiRP4; potassium channel, voltage gated subfamily E regulatory beta subunit 5; potassium voltage-gated channel subfamily E member 1-like protein; potassium voltage-gated channel subfamily E regulatory beta subunit 5; potassium voltage-gated channel, Isk-related family, member 1-like
