Summaries for KCNQ3 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for KCNQ3 Gene

  • This gene encodes a protein that functions in the regulation of neuronal excitability. The encoded protein forms an M-channel by associating with the products of the related KCNQ2 or KCNQ5 genes, which both encode integral membrane proteins. M-channel currents are inhibited by M1 muscarinic acetylcholine receptors and are activated by retigabine, a novel anti-convulsant drug. Defects in this gene are a cause of benign familial neonatal convulsions type 2 (BFNC2), also known as epilepsy, benign neonatal type 2 (EBN2). Alternative splicing of this gene results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, May 2014]

GeneCards Summary for KCNQ3 Gene

KCNQ3 (Potassium Voltage-Gated Channel Subfamily Q Member 3) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with KCNQ3 include Seizures, Benign Neonatal, Type 2 and Benign Familial Neonatal Epilepsy. Among its related pathways are Potassium Channels and Transmission across Chemical Synapses. GO annotations related to this gene include ion channel activity and potassium channel activity. An important paralog of this gene is KCNQ4.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for KCNQ3 Gene

  • Probably important in the regulation of neuronal excitability. Associates with KCNQ2 or KCNQ5 to form a potassium channel with essentially identical properties to the channel underlying the native M-current, a slowly activating and deactivating potassium conductance which plays a critical role in determining the subthreshold electrical excitability of neurons as well as the responsiveness to synaptic inputs.

Tocris Summary for KCNQ3 Gene

  • Voltage-gated potassium channels (KV) belong to the 6-TM family of potassium channel that also comprises the Ca2+-activated Slo (actually 7-TM) and the Ca2+-activated SK subfamilies. The alpha-subunits contain a single pore-forming region and combine to form tetramers.
