Domain Architecture (Details)
InterPro domains assigned to SynO:
Inwardly-rectifying K+ channels (Kir) are the principal class of two-TM domain K+ channels. They are characterised by the property of inward-rectification.hich is described as the ability to allow large inward currents and smaller outward currents. Inwardly rectifying potassium channels (Kir) are responsible for regulating diverse processes including: cellular excitability.ascular tone.eart rate.enal salt flow.nd insulin release . To date.round twenty members of this superfamily have been cloned.hich can be grouped into six families by sequence similarity.nd these are designated Kir1.x-6.x . Cloned Kir channel cDNAs encode proteins of between ~370-500 residues.oth N- and C-termini are thought to be cytoplasmic.nd the N-terminus lacks a signal sequence. Kir channel alpha subunits possess only 2TM domains linked with a P-domain. Thus.ir channels share similarity with the fifth and sixth domains.nd P-domain of the other families. It is thought that four Kir subunits assemble to form a tetrameric channel complex.hich may be hetero- or homomeric .Potassium channels are the most diverse group of the ion channel family. They are important in shaping the action potential.nd in neuronal excitability and plasticity .

In prokaryotic cells.hey play a role in themaintenance of ionic homeostasis . All K+ channels discovered so far possess a core of alpha subunits.ach comprising either one or two copies of a highly conserved pore loop domain (P-domain). The P-domain contains the sequence (T/SxxTxGxG).hich hasbeen termed the K+ selectivity sequence.In families that contain one P-domain.our subunits assemble to form a selective pathway for K+ across the membrane.However.t remains unclear how the 2 P-domain subunits assemble to form a selective pore. The functional diversity of these families can arise through homo- or hetero-associations of alpha subunits or association with auxiliary cytoplasmic beta subunits. K+ channel subunits containing one pore domain can be assigned into one of two superfamilies: those that possess six transmembrane (TM) domains and those that possess only two TM domains. The six TM domain superfamily can be further subdivided into conserved gene families: the voltage-gated (Kv) channels; the KCNQ channels (originally known as KvLQT channels); the EAG-like K+ channels; and three types of calcium (Ca)-activated K+ channels (BK.K and SK). The 2TM domain family comprises inward-rectifying K+ channels. In addition.here are K+ channel alpha-subunits that possess two P-domains. These are usually highly regulated K+ selective leak channels.Kir2.2 (also known as IRK2/BIR8).ike other Kir2.x family members.as been found to be expressed in the brain. Immuno-localisation studies have revealed it is primarily expressed in the cerebellum.s opposed to theforebrain (cf. Kir1.1). It is also expressed to lower extents in the kidney.eart and skeletal muscle. When heterologously expressed in Xenopus oocytes.uman Kir2.2 produced strong.nwardly rectifying K+ currents. Co-expression of Kir2.2v (a closely related Kir2.x subunit) with Kir2.2 caused an inhibition of induced K+ currents.ndicating that it likely functions as a negative regulator of Kir2.2 .
