Potassium channel, subfamily K, member 6

This gene encodes one of the members of the superfamily of potassium channel proteins containing two pore-forming P domains. This channel protein, considered an open rectifier, is widely expressed. It is stimulated by arachidonic acid, and inhibited by internal acidification and volatile anaesthetics. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

Choi et al., Seoul, South Korea. In Sci Rep, 2014
The identified K(+) channels involved in the electrogenic transport were KCNN2, KCNJ14, KCNK2, and KCNK6, and the K(+) transports via those channels are thought to play an important role in the maintenance of the unique ionic milieu of the inner ear fluid.

Chabot et al., Sherbrooke, Canada. In Nucleic Acids Res, 2014
Such modulators can be bifunctional oligonucleotides made of an antisense portion that determines target specificity, and a non-hybridizing tail that recruits proteins or RNA/protein complexes that affect splice site selection (TOSS and TOES, respectively, for targeted oligonucleotide silencer of splicing and targeted oligonucleotide enhancer of splicing).

Transcriptional expression of voltage-gated Na⁺ and voltage-independent K⁺ channels in the developing rat superficial dorsal horn.
Baccei et al., Cincinnati, United States. In Neuroscience, 2013
The data also indicate selective, age-dependent changes in the mRNA expression of two-pore domain (K(2P)) K(+) channels, as TWIK-related acid-sensitive K(+) channels TASK-1 (KCNK3) and TASK-3 (KCNK9) were down-regulated during postnatal development in the absence of any changes in the tandem of pore domains in a weak inward rectifying K(+) channel (TWIK) isoforms examined (KCNK1 and KCNK6).
