General description

Potassium inwardly-rectifying channel, subfamily J, member 1 (KCNJ1) codes for a renal outer medullary potassium channel (ROMK1, Kir1.1). Glipizide is an antidiabetic drug, that is used to treat type II diabetes.(5)


Glipizide has been used in:
  • chick embryo yolk sac membrane (YSM) and chorioallantoic membrane (CAM) assay
  • MCF-7 breast cancer assay on chorioallantoic membrane (CAM)
  • metastasis assays
  • rat aortic ring assay
  • in vivo matrigel plug assay
  • 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyl tetrazolium bromide (MTT) assay
  • flow cytometry
  • western blotting

Biochem/physiol Actions

Potassium inwardly-rectifying channel, subfamily J, member 1 (KCNJ1) plays a vital role in potassium balance. It is an ATP-dependent K+ channel blocker. The encoded protein is liable for the elimination of potassium in exchange for the absorption of sodium by the epithelial sodium channel (ENaC). Mutation in KCNJ1 is linked with several diseases, such as, antenatal Bartter syndrome and diabetes. Glipizide helps to repress the development of tumors and metastasis by preventing angiogenesis.

Glucose metabolism is regulated by the opposing actions of insulin and glucagon. Insulin is released from pancreatic ß cells in response to high blood glucose levels and regulates glucose metabolism through its actions on muscle, liver, and adipose tissue.
