Potassium channel, subfamily K, member 12

This gene encodes one of the members of the superfamily of potassium channel proteins containing two pore-forming P domains. The product of this gene has not been shown to be a functional channel, however, it may require other non-pore-forming proteins for activity. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

In the tubular breast carcinoma samples, the highest frequencies for DNA sequence copy number losses were detected for CDH13 (in 86% of the samples) and MSH2, KCNK12 (in 52% of the samples).
Changes in expression of some two-pore domain potassium channel genes (KCNK) in selected brain regions of developing mice.
Wisden et al., Heidelberg, Germany. In Neuroscience, 2008
THIK-2 mRNA was up-regulated with TASK-1 and TASK-3 transcripts in cerebella of GABAA receptor alpha6 subunit knockout mice, possibly implying a functional association of THIK-2, TASK-1 and TASK-3.
