DescriptionThe Kv2.1 potassium channel is a voltage-gated channel protein which belongs to the delayed rectifier class and to the Shah potassium channel subfamily. Portassium channels are mainly found in plasma membranes but are not generally distributed over the cell surface. Potassium channels catalyze the rapid permeation of potassium ions while rejecting biologically abundant potential competitors such as sodium, calcium, and magnesium. Ion selectivity and high through put rate of potassium channels is accomplished by precise co-ordination of dehydrated potassium by the protin and multiple ion occupancy within the permeation pathweay. All potassium channels carry ou the formation of a transmembrane "leak" specific for potassium ions. Since cells almost universally maintain cytoplasmic potassium concentration higher than those extracellularly, the opening of a potassium channel implies a negative ongoing change in electrical voltage across the cell membrane. This may result in termination of the action potential of electrically excitable cells including nerve, muscle, and pancreatic beta cells. In non-excitable cells, potassium channels play important roles in the cellular potassium recycling required for electrolyte balance effected by the renal epithelium.
