STRINGSTRING
STRING protein interaction network
Nodes:
Network nodes represent proteins
splice isoforms or post-translational modifications are collapsed, i.e. each node represents all the proteins produced by a single, protein-coding gene locus.
Node Color
colored nodes:
query proteins and first shell of interactors
white nodes:
second shell of interactors
Node Content
empty nodes:
proteins of unknown 3D structure
filled nodes:
some 3D structure is known or predicted
Edges:
Edges represent protein-protein associations
associations are meant to be specific and meaningful, i.e. proteins jointly contribute to a shared function; this does not necessarily mean they are physically binding to each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
Others
textmining
co-expression
protein homology

KCNK7Potassium channel subfamily K member 7; Probable potassium channel subunit. No channel activity observed in vitro as protein remains in the endoplasmic reticulum. May need to associate with an as yet unknown partner in order to reach the plasma membrane; Belongs to the two pore domain potassium channel (TC 1.A.1.8) family (307 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
KCNK18
Potassium channel subfamily K member 18; Outward rectifying potassium channel. Produces rapidly activating outward rectifier K(+) currents. May function as background potassium channel that sets the resting membrane potential. Channel activity is directly activated by calcium signal. Activated by the G(q)-protein coupled receptor pathway. The calcium signal robustly activates the channel via calcineurin, whereas the anchoring of 14-3-3/YWHAH interferes with the return of the current to the resting state after activation. Inhibited also by arachidonic acid and other naturally occurring [...]

KCNK13
Potassium channel subfamily K member 13; Potassium channel displaying weak inward rectification in symmetrical K(+) solution; Belongs to the two pore domain potassium channel (TC 1.A.1.8) family

KCNK12
Potassium channel subfamily K member 12; Probable potassium channel subunit. No channel activity observed in heterologous systems. May need to associate with another protein to form a functional channel (By similarity); Potassium two pore domain channel subfamily K

KCNK15
Potassium channel subfamily K member 15; Probable potassium channel subunit. No channel activity observed in heterologous systems. May need to associate with another protein to form a functional channel; Potassium two pore domain channel subfamily K

KCNK4
Potassium channel subfamily K member 4; Voltage-insensitive potassium channel. Channel opening is triggered by mechanical forces that deform the membrane. Channel opening is triggered by raising the intracellular pH to basic levels (By similarity). The channel is inactive at 24 degrees Celsius (in vitro); raising the temperature to 37 degrees Celsius increases the frequency of channel opening, with a further increase in channel activity when the temperature is raised to 42 degrees Celsius (By similarity). Plays a role in the perception of pain caused by heat (By similarity). Plays a ro [...]

KCNK17
Potassium channel subfamily K member 17; Outward rectifying potassium channel. Produces rapidly activating and non-inactivating outward rectifier K(+) currents; Potassium two pore domain channel subfamily K
     
0.706
KCNK9
Potassium channel subfamily K member 9; pH-dependent, voltage-insensitive, background potassium channel protein; Potassium two pore domain channel subfamily K
   
 
0.700
KCNK3
Potassium channel subfamily K member 3; pH-dependent, voltage-insensitive, background potassium channel protein. Rectification direction results from potassium ion concentration on either side of the membrane. Acts as an outward rectifier when external potassium concentration is low. When external potassium concentration is high, current is inward; Belongs to the two pore domain potassium channel (TC 1.A.1.8) family

KCNK5
Potassium channel subfamily K member 5; pH-dependent, voltage insensitive, outwardly rectifying potassium channel. Outward rectification is lost at high external K(+) concentrations; Potassium two pore domain channel subfamily K

KCNK16
Potassium channel subfamily K member 16; Outward rectifying potassium channel. Produces rapidly activating and non-inactivating outward rectifier K(+) currents; Potassium two pore domain channel subfamily K
