Summaries for KCNE4 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for KCNE4 Gene

  • Voltage-gated potassium (Kv) channels represent the most complex class of voltage-gated ion channels from both functional and structural standpoints. Their diverse functions include regulating neurotransmitter release, heart rate, insulin secretion, neuronal excitability, epithelial electrolyte transport, smooth muscle contraction, and cell volume. This gene encodes a member of the potassium channel, voltage-gated, isk-related subfamily. This member is a type I membrane protein, and a beta subunit that assembles with a potassium channel alpha-subunit to modulate the gating kinetics and enhance stability of the multimeric complex. This gene is prominently expressed in the embryo and in adult uterus. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for KCNE4 Gene

KCNE4 (Potassium Channel, Voltage Gated Subfamily E Regulatory Beta Subunit 4) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with KCNE4 include hypokalemic periodic paralysis, type 1. Among its related pathways are Antiarrhythmic Pathway, Pharmacodynamics and Dopamine-DARPP32 Feedback onto cAMP Pathway. GO annotations related to this gene include voltage-gated potassium channel activity.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for KCNE4 Gene

  • Ancillary protein that assembles as a beta subunit with a voltage-gated potassium channel complex of pore-forming alpha subunits. Modulates the gating kinetics and enhances stability of the channel complex. May associate with KCNQ1/KVLTQ1 and inhibit potassium current

Tocris Summary for KCNE4 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.
