External Ids for KCNK6 Gene
This gene encodes one of the members of the superfamily of potassium channel proteins containing two pore-forming P domains. This channel protein, considered an open rectifier, is widely expressed. It is stimulated by arachidonic acid, and inhibited by internal acidification and volatile anaesthetics. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for KCNK6 Gene
KCNK6 (Potassium Channel, Two Pore Domain Subfamily K, Member 6) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with KCNK6 include hemopericardium and brachial plexus lesion. Among its related pathways are Activation of cAMP-Dependent PKA and Activation of cAMP-Dependent PKA. GO annotations related to this gene include inward rectifier potassium channel activity. An important paralog of this gene is KCNK3.
