Potassium channel, subfamily K, member 7, also known as KCNK7 or K2P7.1 is a protein which in humans is encoded by the KCNK7 gene. K2P7.1 is a potassium channel containing two pore-forming P domains.[1][2][3] Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.[4]

Function

This gene encodes a member of the superfamily of potassium channel proteins containing two pore-forming P domains. The product of this gene has not been shown to be a functional channel; It may require other non-pore-forming proteins for activity.[4]
