KCNJ15, also named as KIR1.3, KIR4.2, and IRKK, is a multi-pass membrane protein belonging to the inwardly-rectifying potassium channel (KIR) family. KIR channels perform functions as diverse as the regulation of resting membrane potential, maintenance of potassium ions homeostasis, control of heart rate and hormone secretion. Cloned from human kidney, the KCNJ15 gene is localized on chromosome 21 in the Down syndrome chromosome region 1 (DCR1) and has been identified as a type 2 diabetes-associated risk gene. The gene is most readily expressed in the pancreas and kidney and less in the lung. (PMID: 8995301; 9299242; 20085713)
KCNJ15/Kir4.2 couples with polyamines to sense weak extracellular electric fields in galvanotaxis.
