Immunoblot against extracts of COS cells transiently transfected with Myc-tagged Kir6.1, HA- tagged Kir6.2 or untagged Kv2.1 plasmid probed with N366/60 (left) or N52A/42 (right) TC supe.
Anti-Kir6.1 Potassium Channel Antibody
Bulk Order Anti-Kir6.1 Potassium Channel Antibody
Kir6.1 potassium channel
ATP-sensitive inward rectifier potassium channel 8 or Kir6.1 is encoded by the gene Kcnj8. Kir6.1 is an integral membrane protein which has a greater tendency to allow potassium to flow into a cell rather than out of a cell, is controlled by G-proteins. In this manner, Kir6.1 plays a role in modifying Ca2+ release from intracellular stores. Kir6.1 is expressed in many tissues including in pancreatic islets, brain, skeletal muscle and heart and found distributed in mitochondria and endoplasmic reticulum. Defects in this gene may be a cause of J-wave syndromes and sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) and Cantu Syndrome.
