|Function||Inward rectifier potassium channels are characterized by a greater tendency to allow potassium to flow into the cell rather than out of it. Their voltage dependence is regulated by the concentration of extracellular potassium; as external potassium is raised, the voltage range of the channel opening shifts to more positive voltages. The inward rectification is mainly due to the blockage of outward current by internal magnesium. KCNJ13 has a very low single channel conductance, low sensitivity to block by external barium and cesium, and no dependence of its inward rectification properties on the internal blocking particle magnesium.|
|Cellular Location||Membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein.|

This gene encodes a member of the inwardly rectifyingpotassium channel family of proteins. Members of this family formion channel pores that allow potassium ions to pass into a cell.The encoded protein belongs to a subfamily of low signal channelconductance proteins that have a low dependence on potassiumconcentration. Mutations in this gene are associated with snowflakevitreoretinal degeneration. Alternate splicing results in multipletranscript variants.
