Gene: Kcnj6 (potassium inwardly-rectifying channel, subfamily J, member 6) Rattus norvegicus
Analyze
Symbol: Kcnj6
Name: potassium inwardly-rectifying channel, subfamily J, member 6
Description: Exhibits G-protein alpha-subunit binding activity. Involved in cellular response to morphine and response to electrical stimulus. Localizes to several cellular components, including the cell surface; neuron projection; and neuronal cell body membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in alcohol use disorder and heroin dependence. Orthologous to human KCNJ6 (potassium voltage-gated channel subfamily J member 6); INTERACTS WITH 6-propyl-2-thiouracil; benzo[a]pyrene; bisphenol A.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: PROVISIONAL
Also known as: BIR1; G protein-activated inward rectifier potassium channel 2; GIRK-2; GIRK2; inward rectifier K(+) channel Kir3.2; KATP-2; LOC360252; potassium channel, inwardly rectifying subfamily J member 6; potassium channel, inwardly rectifying subfamily J, member 6; Potassium inwardly-rectifying channel subfamily J member 6; potassium voltage-gated channel subfamily J member 6
