potassium voltage-gated channel, subfamily G, member 1
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 G. This gene is abundantly expressed in skeletal muscle. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants have been found in normal and cancerous tissues.
KCNG1 involved in several pathways and played different roles in them. We selected most pathways KCNG1 participated on our site, such as Neuronal System, Potassium Channels, Voltage gated Potassium channels, which may be useful for your reference. Also, other proteins which involved in the same pathway with KCNG1 were listed below. Creative Biomart supplied nearly all the proteins listed, you can search them on our site.
KCNG1 has several biochemical functions, for example, delayed rectifier potassium channel activity, potassium channel activity. Some of the functions are cooperated with other proteins, some of the functions could acted by KCNG1 itself. We selected most functions KCNG1 had, and list some proteins which have the same functions with KCNG1. You can find most of the proteins on our site.
