KCNE3(redirected from voltage-gated K+ channel subunit MIRP2)
KCNE3A gene on chromosome 11q13.4 that encodes a beta subunit of the voltage-gated, isk-related potassium channel subfamily. This type-I membrane protein assembles with a potassium channel alpha-subunit to modulate gating kinetics and stabilise the multimeric complex. It is primarily expressed in the kidneys.
KCNE3 mutations are associated with hypokalemic periodic paralysis.
