Potassium inwardly-rectifying channel, subfamily J, member 3

GIRK1, Kir3.1, KGA
Potassium channels are present in most mammalian cells, where they participate in a wide range of physiologic responses. The protein encoded by this gene is an integral membrane protein and inward-rectifier type potassium channel. The encoded protein, which has a greater tendency to allow potassium to flow into a cell rather than out of a cell, is controlled by G-proteins and plays an important role in regulating heartbeat. It associates with three other G-protein-activated potassium channels to form a heteromultimeric pore-forming complex. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

Zacharewski et al., Toronto, Canada. In Toxicol Sci, Dec 2015
In addition, the GAC:KGA glutaminase (GLS1) protein isoform ratio was increased, consistent with increases in glutaminolysis which serves an anaplerotic role for the TCA cycle and compensates for the reduced glycolytic flux.

Albrecht et al., Warsaw, Poland. In Exp Mol Pathol, Dec 2015
Human glutaminases are encoded by two genes: the GLS gene encodes the kidney-type glutaminases, KGA and GAC, while the GLS2 gene encodes the liver-type glutaminases, GAB and LGA.
A Quantitative Model of the GIRK1/2 Channel Reveals That Its Basal and Evoked Activities Are Controlled by Unequal Stoichiometry of Gα and Gβγ.
Dascal et al., Tel Aviv-Yafo, Israel. In Plos Comput Biol, Nov 2015
We have previously shown for heterologously expressed neuronal GIRK1/2, and now show for native GIRK in hippocampal neurons, that Ibasal and Ievoked are interrelated: the extent of activation by neurotransmitter (activation index, Ra) is inversely related to Ibasal.
Opposing roles of glutaminase isoforms in determining glioblastoma cell phenotype.
Albrecht et al., Warsaw, Poland. In Neurochem Int, Sep 2015
Human GA isoforms are encoded by two genes: GLS gene codes for kidney-type isoforms, KGA and GAC, whereas GLS2 codes for liver-type isoforms, GAB and LGA.
Localization and Targeting of GIRK Channels in Mammalian Central Neurons.
Aguado et al., Albacete, Spain. In Int Rev Neurobiol, 2014
Molecular cloning has revealed four distinct mammalian genes (GIRK1-4), which, with the exception of GIRK4, are broadly expressed in the central nervous system (CNS) and have been implicated in a variety of neurological disorders.
Reelin signaling specifies the molecular identity of the pyramidal neuron distal dendritic compartment.
Siegelbaum et al., New York City, United States. In Cell, 2014
We find that Reelin signaling is required for the striking enrichment of HCN1 and GIRK1 channels in the distal tuft dendrites of both hippocampal CA1 and neocortical layer 5 pyramidal neurons, where the channels actively filter inputs targeted to these dendritic domains.

Currently recognized atrial selective targets include atrial Nav1.5 channels, Kv1.5 channels and constitutively active Kir3.1/3.4 channels, each of which confers atrial selectivity by different mechanisms.

These data suggest that the KCNJ3 gene is genetically associated with schizophrenia in Asian populations and add further evidence to the "channelopathy theory of psychiatric illnesses".
