General annotation (Comments)

Function

This potassium channel is controlled by G proteins. Inward rectifier potassium channels are characterized by a greater tendency to allow potassium to flow into the cell rather than out of it. Their voltage dependence is regulated by the concentration of extracellular potassium; as external potassium is raised, the voltage range of the channel opening shifts to more positive voltages. The inward rectification is mainly due to the blockage of outward current by internal magnesium. This receptor plays a crucial role in regulating the heartbeat.

Subunit structure

Associates with GIRK2, GIRK3 or GIRK4 to form a G-protein activated heteromultimer pore-forming unit. The resulting inward current is much larger By similarity.

Subcellular location

Membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein.

Sequence similarities

Belongs to the inward rectifier-type potassium channel (TC 1.A.2.1) family. KCNJ3 subfamily. [View classification]
