The membrane protein encoded by this gene is a hyperpolarization-activated cation channel that contributes to the native pacemaker currents in heart and neurons. The encoded protein can homodimerize or heterodimerize with other pore-forming subunits to form a potassium channel. This channel may act as a receptor for sour tastes. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2011]
GeneCards Summary for HCN1 Gene
HCN1 (Hyperpolarization Activated Cyclic Nucleotide Gated Potassium Channel 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with HCN1 include Epileptic Encephalopathy, Early Infantile, 24 and Undetermined Early-Onset Epileptic Encephalopathy. Among its related pathways are Sweet Taste Signaling and Transmission across Chemical Synapses. GO annotations related to this gene include identical protein binding and voltage-gated potassium channel activity. An important paralog of this gene is HCN4.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for HCN1 Gene
Hyperpolarization-activated ion channel exhibiting weak selectivity for potassium over sodium ions. Contributes to the native pacemaker currents in heart (If) and in neurons (Ih). May mediate responses to sour stimuli.
HCN (hyperpolarization-activated, cyclic nucleotide-gated) channels are members of the cyclic nucleotide-regulated channel family along with cyclic nucleotide-gated (CNG) channels. They are cationic channels that open under hyperpolarization.
