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, subfamily F. This gene is intronless and expressed in all tissues tested, including the heart, skeletal muscle, brain, kidney, and pancreas. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for KCNF1 Gene
KCNF1 (Potassium Voltage-Gated Channel Modifier Subfamily F Member 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with KCNF1 include Deafness, Autosomal Recessive 47. Among its related pathways are Dopamine-DARPP32 Feedback onto cAMP Pathway and Potassium Channels. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include ion channel activity and delayed rectifier potassium channel activity. An important paralog of this gene is KCNB2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for KCNF1 Gene
Putative voltage-gated potassium channel.
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.
