Summaries for KCTD3 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for KCTD3 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the potassium channel tetramerization-domain containing (KCTD) protein family. Members of this protein family regulate the biophysical characteristics of ion channels. In mouse, this protein interacts with hyperpolarization-activated cyclic nucleotide-gated channel complex 3 and enhances its cell surface expression and current density. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2016]

GeneCards Summary for KCTD3 Gene

KCTD3 (Potassium Channel Tetramerization Domain Containing 3) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with KCTD3 include Tic Disorder. Among its related pathways are Neuropathic Pain-Signaling in Dorsal Horn Neurons and Activation of cAMP-Dependent PKA. An important paralog of this gene is SHKBP1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for KCTD3 Gene

  • Accessory subunit of potassium/sodium hyperpolarization-activated cyclic nucleotide-gated channel 3 (HCN3) upregulating its cell-surface expression and current density without affecting its voltage dependence and kinetics.
