Gene: Kcnj11 (potassium voltage-gated channel subfamily J member 11) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Kcnj11
Name: potassium voltage-gated channel subfamily J member 11
Description: Exhibits several functions, including ATP-activated inward rectifier potassium channel activity, ankyrin binding activity, and heat shock protein binding activity; involved in several processes, including cellular response to glucose stimulus, cellular response to nicotine, and cellular response to tumor necrosis factor; localizes to several cellular components, including the T-tubule, cytoplasm, and neuron projection; biomarker of several diseases, including diabetes mellitus (multiple), epilepsy (multiple), hypertension, and sciatic neuropathy; orthologous to human KCNJ11 (potassium voltage-gated channel subfamily J member 11); PARTICIPATES IN acebutolol pharmacodynamics pathway; adrenergic beta receptor agonist and beta-blocker pharmacodynamics pathway; altered insulin secretion pathway; INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 6-propyl-2-thiouracil; acrylamide.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: ATP-sensitive inward rectifier potassium channel 11; BIR; inward rectifier K(+) channel Kir6.2; Kir6.2; potassium channel, inwardly rectifying subfamily J member 11; potassium channel, inwardly rectifying subfamily J, member 11; potassium inwardly rectifying channel, subfamily J, member 11; potassium inwardly-rectifying channel subfamily J member 11
