  • Application notes
    Is unsuitable for ICC or IP.
  • Target

    • Function
      Pore-forming (alpha) subunit of voltage-gated rapidly inactivating A-type potassium channels. May contribute to I(To) current in heart and I(Sa) current in neurons. Channel properties are modulated by interactions with other alpha subunits and with regulatory subunits.
    • Tissue specificity
      Highly expressed throughout the brain. Expression is very low or absent in other tissues.
    • Sequence similarities
      Belongs to the potassium channel family. D (Shal) (TC 1.A.1.2) subfamily. Kv4.2/KCND2 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.
    • Post-translational
      Phosphorylated on serine and threonine residues.
    • Cellular localization
      Cell membrane. Cell projection > dendrite. Detected in dendrites in cultured hippocampal neurons. Association with KCNIP2 probably enhances cell surface expression.
