General description

Potassium voltage-gated channel subfamily J member 2 (KCNJ2) is an inward-rectifying potassium channel. This tetrameric protein possesses two transmembrane helix domains (M1 and M2), an ion-selective P-loop between M1 and M2 and cytoplasmic amino and carboxy-terminal domains. The gene encoding KCNJ2 is localized on human chromosome 17q24.3.


synthetic peptide corresponding to amino acids 392-410 of human Kir2.1 (with additional N-terminal cysteine). This epitope is identical in rabbit, bovine, pig, and guinea pig and highly homologous in rat, mouse and chicken.

Physical form

Lyophilized from phosphate buffered saline, pH 7.4, 1% bovine serum albumin, and 0.025% sodium azide.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Potassium voltage-gated channel subfamily J member 2 (KCNJ2) has been shown to have a role in the differentiation and proliferation of bone marrow-derived macrophages (BMDM) in mice. It allows the inward movement of K+ into the cell and maintains its balance. Mutations in the KCNJ2 gene have been linked to Andersen-Tawil syndrome.
