27100087 RNA-seq evidence of biallelic expression of KCNJ15 and 10 neighboring genes in at least one primary human tissue tested indicates that the expression of KCNJ15 is uncoupled from the control of the maternally inherited 5mCpG imprints at the WRB differentially methylated region (DMR) in disomic controls or trisomy (Down syndrome) individuals.
26449415 KCNJ15 couples with polyamines in sensing weak electric fields.
26108660 KCNJ15 has a major role in histamine-stimulated gastric acid secretion.
23595124 We had performed a replication study using an independent larger Japanese population for the association of rs3746876 within KCNJ15, and observed a significant association of rs3746876 with type 2 diabetes, but this study failed to find original finding.
22566534 It was shown that downregulation of Kcnj15 leads to increased insulin secretion in vitro and in vivo. The mechanism for regulating insulin secretion inolved a calcium-sensiong receptor.
20085713 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
20085713 KCNJ15 is a previously unreported susceptibility gene for T2DM among Asians
19420109 MUPP1 and Kir4.2 may participate in a protein complex in the nephron that could regulate transport of K(+) as well as other ions.
17122384 Calcium-sensing receptor interacts directly with Kir4.1 and Kir4.2 and can decrease their currents.
15068243 The potential synergy and consequences of the overexpression of KIR4.2 and KIR3.2 in Down's syndrome brain development are discussed.
