Entrez Gene Summary for KCNK18 Gene

  • Potassium channels play a role in many cellular processes including maintenance of the action potential, muscle contraction, hormone secretion, osmotic regulation, and ion flow. This gene encodes a member of the superfamily of potassium channel proteins containing two pore-forming P domains and the encoded protein functions as an outward rectifying potassium channel. A mutation in this gene has been found to be associated with migraine with aura.[provided by RefSeq, Jan 2011]

GeneCards Summary for KCNK18 Gene

KCNK18 (Potassium Two Pore Domain Channel Subfamily K Member 18) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with KCNK18 include Migraine, With Or Without Aura 13 and Migraine With Or Without Aura, Susceptibility 13. Among its related pathways are Cardiac conduction and Transmission across Chemical Synapses. GO annotations related to this gene include potassium channel activity and potassium ion leak channel activity.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for KCNK18 Gene

  • Outward rectifying potassium channel. Produces rapidly activating outward rectifier K(+) currents. May function as background potassium channel that sets the resting membrane potential. Channel activity is directly activated by calcium signal. Activated by the G(q)-protein coupled receptor pathway. The calcium signal robustly activates the channel via calcineurin, whereas the anchoring of 14-3-3/YWHAH interferes with the return of the current to the resting state after activation. Inhibited also by arachidonic acid and other naturally occurring unsaturated free fatty acids. Channel activity is also enhanced by volatile anesthetics, such as isoflurane. Appears to be the primary target of hydroxy-alpha-sanshool, an ingredient of Schezuan pepper. May be involved in the somatosensory function with special respect to pain sensation (By similarity).

  • Migraine with or without aura 13 (MGR13) [MIM:613656]: A form of migraine transmitted in an autosomal dominant pattern. Migraine is a disabling symptom complex of periodic headaches, usually temporal and unilateral. Headaches are often accompanied by irritability, nausea, vomiting and photophobia, preceded by constriction of the cranial arteries. The two major subtypes are common migraine (migraine without aura) and classic migraine (migraine with aura). Classic migraine is characterized by recurrent attacks of reversible neurological symptoms (aura) that precede or accompany the headache. Aura may include a combination of sensory disturbances, such as blurred vision, hallucinations, vertigo, numbness and difficulty in concentrating and speaking. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:20871611}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry. Susceptibility to migraine has been shown to be conferred by a frameshift mutation that segregates with the disorder in a large multigenerational family. Migraine was associated with sensitivity to lights, sounds, and smells, as well as nausea and occasional vomiting. Triggers included fatigue, alcohol and bright lights. Mutations in KCNK18 are a rare cause of migraine.
