|Function||Voltage-gated potassium channel that plays an important role in the rapid repolarization of fast-firing brain neurons. The channel opens in response to the voltage difference across the membrane, forming a potassium-selective channel through which potassium ions pass in accordance with their electrochemical gradient (PubMed:25401298). Can form functional homotetrameric channels and heterotetrameric channels that contain variable proportions of KCNC2, and possibly other family members as well. Contributes to fire sustained trains of very brief action potentials at high frequency in pallidal neurons.|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein|

The Shaker gene family of Drosophila encodes components ofvoltage-gated potassium channels and is comprised of foursubfamilies. Based on sequence similarity, this gene is similar toone of these subfamilies, namely the Shaw subfamily. The proteinencoded by this gene belongs to the delayed rectifier class ofchannel proteins and is an integral membrane protein that mediatesthe voltage-dependent potassium ion permeability of excitablemembranes. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoformshave been inferred for this gene based on orthologous loci.
