Gene: Kcnj10 (potassium inwardly-rectifying channel, subfamily J, member 10) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Kcnj10
Name: potassium inwardly-rectifying channel, subfamily J, member 10
Description: Exhibits identical protein binding activity and signaling receptor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including membrane hyperpolarization; potassium ion import across plasma membrane; and response to corticosteroid. Localizes to several cellular components, including astrocyte projection; basolateral plasma membrane; and microvillus. Used to study diabetic retinopathy. Biomarker of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis; brain disease (multiple); eye disease (multiple); and sensorineural hearing loss. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in EAST syndrome and autosomal recessive nonsyndromic deafness 4. Orthologous to human KCNJ10 (potassium inwardly rectifying channel subfamily J member 10); INTERACTS WITH 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 2,2',4,4'-Tetrabromodiphenyl ether; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: ATP-sensitive inward rectifier potassium channel 10; ATP-sensitive inward rectifier potassium channel KAB-2; BIR10; BIRK1; brain-specific inwardly rectifying K(+) channel 1; inward rectifier K(+) channel Kir4.1; kir4.1; potassium channel, inwardly rectifying subfamily J member 10; potassium channel, inwardly rectifying subfamily J, member 10; potassium voltage-gated channel subfamily J member 10
