25921210 Kir7.1 mutations are associated with vision disorders to include novel insights into the molecular mechanism of disease pathobiology in Leber Congenital Amaurosis.
25475713 Juvenile or early-adult-onset cataract in the setting of a congenital vitreo-retinal dystrophy notable for fibrosis over the disc and clumped pigmentation in the posterior pole is a unique phenotype that suggests recessive KCNJ13 mutations.
25056913 Kir7.1 regulates the transition from quiescence to contractions in the pregnant uterus.
24667918 Microarray analysis indicates HIV-1 Tat-induced downregulation of potassium inwardly-rectifying channel, subfamily J, member 13 (KCNJ13) in primary human brain microvascular endothelial cells
23977131 Kir7.1, R162W mutant showed a reduction of IKir7.1 and positive shift in '0' current potential.
22706862 Kir7.1 expression was found in 100% of choroid plexus tumors and was absent in endolymphatic sac tumors.
21763485 A homozygous nonsense mutation was found in the potassium channel subunit gene KCNJ13 that caused leber congenital amaurosis.
19460752 Knockdown of potassium inwardly-rectifying channel, subfamily J, member 13 (KCNJ13; KIR7.1) by shRNA library screening inhibits HIV-1 replication in cultured Jurkat T-cells
19240061 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
18976636 This study demonstrates the dual regulation of Kir7.1 channel function by PKA and PKC.
18179896 These results indicate that the KCNJ13 R162W mutation can cause Snowflake vitreoretinal degeneration and further show that vitreoretinal degeneration can arise through mutations in genes whose products are not structural components of the vitreous.
18094146 Kir7.1 channels are modulated by intracellular protons by diverse mechanisms; H26 is important for channel activation at physiological pH(i) and it influences an unidentified proton-induced inhibitory mechanism.
18035352 This study confirms the expression of Kir7.1 in human RPE, identifies a Kir7.1 splice variant resulting in predicted changes in protein sequence, and indicates that there is no functional interaction between this splice variant and full-length Kir7.1.
