Family

Potassium channel accessory subunit protein 4, MinK-related (IPR020383)

Short name: K_chnl_acc_su_p4_MinK-rel

Family relationships

None.

Description

MinK-related peptides (MiRPs or KCNEs) are single-transmembrane proteins that associate with pore-forming ion-channel sub-units to form stable complexes with channel properties markedly distinct from those of the isolated pore-forming sub-units [PMID: 12533541]. MPS-4 is expressed exclusively in the C. elegans nervous system and is essential for neuronal excitability [PMID: 25347290].
