Potassium Channels, Inwardly Rectifying definition: Potassium channels where the flow of K+ ions into the cell is greater than the outward flow.
inward rectifier potassium channel activity definition: Catalysis of the transmembrane transfer of a potassium ion by an inwardly-rectifying voltage-gated channel. An inwardly rectifying current-voltage relation is one where at any given driving force the inward flow of K+ ions exceeds the outward flow for the opposite driving force. The inward-rectification is due to a voltage-dependent block of the channel pore by a specific ligand or ligands, and as a result the macroscopic conductance depends on the difference between membrane voltage and the K+ equilibrium potential rather than on membrane voltage itself. [GOC:cb, GOC:mah, PMID:14977398]
ATP-activated inward rectifier potassium channel activity definition: Catalysis of the transmembrane transfer of a potassium ion by an inwardly-rectifying voltage-gated channel, where the inward rectification is due to a voltage-dependent block of the channel pore by ATP. An inwardly rectifying current-voltage relation is one where at any given driving force the inward flow of K+ ions exceeds the outward flow for the opposite driving force. [GOC:cb, GOC:mah]
G-protein activated inward rectifier potassium channel activity definition: Catalysis of the transmembrane transfer of a potassium ion by an inwardly-rectifying voltage-gated channel, where the inward rectification is due to a voltage-dependent block of the channel pore by a G protein. An inwardly rectifying current-voltage relation is one where at any given driving force the inward flow of K+ ions exceeds the outward flow for the opposite driving force. [GOC:cb, GOC:mah]
inward rectifier channel definition: OBSOLETE (was not defined before being made obsolete). [GOC:go_curators]
