Background of KCNK9 antibody

K2P9.1 (also med TASK3 or KCNK9) is a member of the 2-pore (2P) domain K+ channels family that probably assemble as dimers to constitute a functiol channel. These channels show little time or voltage dependence and are considered to be â??leakâ? or â??backgroundâ? K+ channels, thereby generating background currents which help set the membrane resting potential and cell excitation. The channels are regulated by diverse physical and chemical stimuli including temperature, pH, mechanical stretch, inhalation anesthetics, etc. The physiological role of the K2P channels is not yet clear, though they were proposed to participate in breathing, aldosterone secretion and anesthetic-mediated neurol activity. In human, expression of K2P9.1 is restricted in brain and its expression overlaps with the structurally related K2P3.1 (TASK1, KCNK3) channel. In rat, it is more widely expressed in other tissues as well as in brain. Unexpectedly, K2P9.1 was found to be over-expressed between 5 to 100-fold in 44% of breast cancer tumors tested. Transfection and over-expression of K2P9.1 in cell lines promotes tumor growth and confers resistance to hypoxia and serum deprivation. Recently, K2P9.1 was found to play an important role in K+-dependent apoptosis of cerebellar granules.
