Voltage-gated potassium (Kv) channels represent the mostcomplex class of voltage-gated ion channels from both functionaland structural standpoints. Their diverse functions includeregulating neurotransmitter release, heart rate, insulin secretion,neuronal excitability, epithelial electrolyte transport, smoothmuscle contraction, and cell volume. This gene encodes a member ofthe potassium channel, voltage-gated, subfamily H. This member is apore-forming (alpha) subunit. The gene is brain-specific, andlocated in the neocortex and the striatum. It may be involved incellular excitability of restricted neurons in the central nervoussystem.
