About This Section

Entrez Gene summary for KCNQ4 Gene:
The protein encoded by this gene forms a potassium channel that is thought to play a critical role in the
regulation of neuronal excitability, particularly in sensory cells of the cochlea. The current generated by this
channel is inhibited by M1 muscarinic acetylcholine receptors and activated by retigabine, a novel
anti-convulsant drug. The encoded protein can form a homomultimeric potassium channel or possibly a
heteromultimeric channel in association with the protein encoded by the KCNQ3 gene. Defects in this gene are a
cause of nonsyndromic sensorineural deafness type 2 (DFNA2), an autosomal dominant form of progressive hearing
loss. Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. (provided by RefSeq, Jul
2008)

GeneCards Summary for KCNQ4 Gene: 
KCNQ4 (potassium voltage-gated channel, KQT-like subfamily, member 4) is a protein-coding gene. Diseases associated with KCNQ4 include dfna2 nonsyndromic hearing loss, and deafness, autosomal dominant 2a, and among its related super-pathways are Potassium Channels and Transmission across Chemical Synapses. GO annotations related to this gene include delayed rectifier potassium channel activity and potassium channel activity. An important paralog of this gene is KCNQ1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot: KCNQ4_HUMAN, P56696
Function: Probably important in the regulation of neuronal excitability. May underlie a potassium current involved
in regulating the excitability of sensory cells of the cochlea. KCNQ4 channels are blocked by linopirdin, XE991
and bepridil, whereas clofilium is without significant effect. Muscarinic agonist oxotremorine-M strongly
suppress KCNQ4 current in CHO cells in which cloned KCNQ4 channels were coexpressed with M1 muscarinic receptors
