FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] Potassium channels play a role in many cellular processes including maintenance of the action potential, muscle contraction, hormone secretion, osmotic regulation, and ion flow. This gene encodes a member of the superfamily of potassium channel proteins containing two pore-forming P domains and the encoded protein functions as an outward rectifying potassium channel. A mutation in this gene has been found to be associated with migraine with aura.[provided by RefSeq, Jan 2011]
PHENOTYPE: Mice homozygous for an ENU-induced allele exhibit altered potassium conductance and neuron electrophysiology. [provided by MGI curators]
