Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.2.2)
Predicted to enable inward rectifier potassium channel activity. Predicted to be involved in potassium ion import across plasma membrane and regulation of ion transmembrane transport. Predicted to act upstream of or within potassium ion transport. Is active in parallel fiber to Purkinje cell synapse. Is integral component of presynaptic membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including adrenal gland; alimentary system; brain; male reproductive gland or organ; and thymus. Orthologous to human KCNJ3 (potassium inwardly rectifying channel subfamily J member 3).
