Gene: Kcnj4 (potassium inwardly-rectifying channel, subfamily J, member 4) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Kcnj4
Name: potassium inwardly-rectifying channel, subfamily J, member 4
Description: Predicted to have PDZ domain binding activity and inward rectifier potassium channel activity. Involved in cellular response to mechanical stimulus. Localizes to the dendrite and neuronal cell body. Orthologous to human KCNJ4 (potassium inwardly rectifying channel subfamily J member 4); PARTICIPATES IN neuron-to-neuron signaling pathway via the chemical synapse; acebutolol pharmacodynamics pathway; adrenergic beta receptor agonist and beta-blocker pharmacodynamics pathway; INTERACTS WITH 2,4,6-trinitrobenzenesulfonic acid; acrylamide; ammonium chloride.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: BIR11; brain inwardly rectifying K(+) channel 2; Hirk2; inward rectifier K(+) channel Kir2.3; inward rectifier potassium channel 4; IRK-3; IRK3; potassium channel, inwardly rectifying subfamily J member 4; potassium channel, inwardly rectifying subfamily J, member 4; potassium voltage-gated channel subfamily J member 4
