FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] Potassium channels are present in most mammalian cells, where they participate in a wide range of physiologic responses. The protein encoded by this gene is an integral membrane protein and inward-rectifier type potassium channel. The encoded protein, which has a greater tendency to allow potassium to flow into a cell rather than out of a cell, probably participates in establishing action potential waveform and excitability of neuronal and muscle tissues. Mutations in this gene have been associated with Andersen syndrome, which is characterized by periodic paralysis, cardiac arrhythmias, and dysmorphic features. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
PHENOTYPE: Mice homozygous for a targeted null mutation die within 8-12 hours after birth, displaying cyanosis and respiratory distress, as well as complete cleft of the secondary palate, and loss of K+-mediated vasodilatation in cerebral arteries. [provided by MGI curators]
