Summary
Enables voltage-gated potassium channel activity. Acts upstream of or within G protein-coupled receptor signaling pathway; potassium ion transport; and regulation of membrane potential. Located in plasma membrane. Part of voltage-gated potassium channel complex. Is expressed in several structures, including brain; early conceptus; limb; olfactory epithelium; and secondary oocyte. Orthologous to human KCNK2 (potassium two pore domain channel subfamily K member 2). [provided by Alliance of Genome Resources, Apr 2022]

RefSeqs maintained independently of Annotated Genomes

These reference sequences exist independently of genome builds. Explain

These reference sequences are curated independently of the genome annotation cycle, so their versions may not match the RefSeq versions in the current genome build. Identify version mismatches by comparing the version of the RefSeq in this section to the one reported in Genomic regions, transcripts, and products above.
