Target

  • Function
    Mediates the voltage-dependent potassium ion permeability of excitable membranes. Channels open or close in response to the voltage difference across the membrane, letting potassium ions pass in accordance with their electrochemical gradient.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the potassium channel family. B (Shab) (TC 1.A.1.2) subfamily. Kv2.1/KCNB1 sub-subfamily.
  • Domain
    The segment S4 is probably the voltage-sensor and is characterized by a series of positively charged amino acids at every third position.
    The tail may be important in modulation of channel activity and/or targeting of the channel to specific subcellular compartments.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Highly phosphorylated on serine residues in the C-terminal. Differential phosphorylation on a subset of serines allows graded activity-dependent regulation of channel gating. Phosphorylation on Ser-457, Ser-541, Ser-567, Ser-607, Ser-656 and Ser-720 as well as the N-terminal Ser-15 are all regulated by calcineurin-mediated dephosphorylation. Particularly, Ser-607 and Tyr-128 are significant sites of voltage-gated regulation through phosphorylation/ dephosphorylation activities. Tyr-128 can be dephosphorylated by PTPalpha and cyt-PTPepsilon. Phosphorylation levels on Ser-607 are supersensitive to neuronal activity. Phosphorylation on Ser-567 is reduced during postnatal development with low levels at P2 and P5. Levels then increase to reach adult levels by P14. Phosphorylation levels on Ser-564 and Ser-607 are greatly reduced during seizures, by 40% and 85% respectively.
