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 . The potassium channel family iscomposed of several functionally distinct isoforms.hich can be broadlyseparated into 2 groups : the practically non-inactivating delayed group and the rapidly inactivating transient group.These are all highly similar proteins.ith only small amino acidchanges causing the diversity of the voltage-dependent gating mechanism.hannel conductance and toxin binding properties. Each type of K+ channel is activated by different signals and conditions depending on their type of regulation: some open in response to depolarisation of the plasma membrane; others in response to hyperpolarisation or an increase in intracellular calcium concentration; some can be regulated by binding of a transmitter.ogether with intracellular kinases; and others are regulated by GTP-binding proteins orother second messengers . In eukaryotic cells.+ channelsare involved in neural signalling and generation of the cardiac rhythm.ct as effectors in signal transduction pathways involving G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) and may have a role in target cell lysis by cytotoxic T-lymphocytes . 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.Kir2.1 (also known as IRK1) is thought to play a role in controlling the excitability of brain and heart tissues. Immuno-localisation studies have revealed it to be present on many cell types within the forebrain.ncluding neurones.acroglia.ndothelial.pendymal and vascular smooth muscle cells. Phosphatidylinositol 4.-bisphosphate (PIP2) is thought to interact with Kir2.1 (as well as several other Kir subunits) via a C-terminal motif.romoting channel activity. Recently it has been demonstrated that nicotine can block Kir2.1 channels.his likely contributing to its ability to promote the occurrence of cardiac arrhythmias .
