Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits inward rectifier potassium channel activity. Involved in several processes, including adult walking behavior; ion transmembrane transport; and regulation of resting membrane potential. Localizes to the basolateral plasma membrane. Used to study EAST syndrome. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in EAST syndrome and autosomal recessive nonsyndromic deafness 4. Orthologous to human KCNJ10 (potassium voltage-gated channel subfamily J member 10).
