KCNQ5

A gene on chromosome 6q14 that encodes a K+ channel which are differentially expressed in the brain and skeletal muscle. The KCNQ5 protein product yields M-like voltage-dependent and inhibitor-sensitive currents that activate slowly with depolarisation, and form heteromeric channels with the KCNQ3 protein product.
