FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene encodes a member of the inward rectifier-type potassium channel family, characterized by having a greater tendency to allow potassium to flow into, rather than out of, a cell. The encoded protein may form a heterodimer with another potassium channel protein and may be responsible for the potassium buffering action of glial cells in the brain. Mutations in this gene have been associated with seizure susceptibility of common idiopathic generalized epilepsy syndromes. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
PHENOTYPE: Homozygous mutant mice show increased input resistance and high depolarization of retinal Muller cells, loss of the endocochlear potential, motor coordination deficits and hindlimb paralysis, and a hypomyelination and spongiform vacuolation in the spinalcord associated with severe axonal pathology.
