|Other Names||Potassium voltage-gated channel subfamily A member 3, HGK5, HLK3, HPCN3, Voltage-gated K(+) channel HuKIII, Voltage-gated potassium channel subunit Kv13, KCNA3, HGK5|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Mediates the voltage-dependent potassium ion permeability of excitable membranes. Assuming opened or closed conformations in response to the voltage difference across the membrane, the protein forms a potassium-selective channel through which potassium ions may pass in accordance with their electrochemical gradient.|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein|

Potassium channels represent the most complex class ofvoltage-gated ion channels from both functional and structuralstandpoints. Their diverse functions include regulatingneurotransmitter release, heart rate, insulin secretion, neuronalexcitability, epithelial electrolyte transport, smooth musclecontraction, and cell volume. Four sequence-related potassiumchannel genes - shaker, shaw, shab, and shal - have been identifiedin Drosophila, and each has been shown to have human homolog(s).This gene encodes a member of the potassium channel, voltage-gated,shaker-related subfamily. This member contains sixmembrane-spanning domains with a shaker-type repeat in the fourthsegment. It belongs to the delayed rectifier class, members ofwhich allow nerve cells to efficiently repolarize following anaction potential. It plays an essential role in T-cellproliferation and activation. This gene appears to be intronlessand it is clustered together with KCNA2 and KCNA10 genes onchromosome 1.
