Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Predicted to have S100 protein binding activity; potassium channel activity; and protein C-terminus binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including cellular response to hypoxia; negative regulation of cytosolic calcium ion concentration; and stabilization of membrane potential. Predicted to localize to integral component of plasma membrane. Is expressed in early conceptus; heart; and secondary oocyte. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in primary pulmonary hypertension. Orthologous to human KCNK3 (potassium two pore domain channel subfamily K member 3).
