Summaries for KCNK15 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for KCNK15 Gene

  • This gene encodes one of the members of the superfamily of potassium channel proteins containing two pore-forming P domains. The product of this gene has not been shown to be a functional channel, however, it may require other non-pore-forming proteins for activity. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for KCNK15 Gene

KCNK15 (Potassium Channel, Two Pore Domain Subfamily K, Member 15) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Activation of cAMP-Dependent PKA and Activation of cAMP-Dependent PKA.
