Summaries for KCNQ5 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for KCNQ5 Gene

  • This gene is a member of the KCNQ potassium channel gene family that is differentially expressed in subregions of the brain and in skeletal muscle. The protein encoded by this gene yields currents that activate slowly with depolarization and can form heteromeric channels with the protein encoded by the KCNQ3 gene. Currents expressed from this protein have voltage dependences and inhibitor sensitivities in common with M-currents. They are also inhibited by M1 muscarinic receptor activation. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, May 2009]

GeneCards Summary for KCNQ5 Gene

KCNQ5 (Potassium Voltage-Gated Channel Subfamily Q Member 5) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with KCNQ5 include benign neonatal seizures and refractive error. Among its related pathways are Transmission across Chemical Synapses and Potassium Channels. GO annotations related to this gene include ion channel activity and delayed rectifier potassium channel activity. An important paralog of this gene is KCNQ4.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for KCNQ5 Gene

  • Probably important in the regulation of neuronal excitability. Associates with KCNQ3 to form a potassium channel which contributes to M-type current, a slowly activating and deactivating potassium conductance which plays a critical role in determining the subthreshold electrical excitability of neurons. May contribute, with other potassium channels, to the molecular diversity of a heterogeneous population of M-channels, varying in kinetic and pharmacological properties, which underlie this physiologically important current. Insensitive to tetraethylammonium, but inhibited by barium, linopirdine and XE991. Activated by niflumic acid and the anticonvulsant retigabine. Muscarine suppresses KCNQ5 current in Xenopus oocytes in which cloned KCNQ5 channels were coexpressed with M(1) muscarinic receptors.
