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 .

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 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).

By comparison with other Kir2.x channels.equence analysis shows it to have a larger putative extracellular loop (~15 more amino acid residues) linking the first TM domain to the pore-forming (H5) domain.lthough the significance of this remains to be elucidated. Functional studies have revealed Kir2.3 channel activity to be modulated by channel phosphorylation.xidation state.nd changes in intracellular and extracellular pH.
