Processes
action potential / blood coagulation / detection of calcium ion / neuronal action potential / potassium ion transmembrane transport / potassium ion transport / regulation of neurotransmitter secretion / regulation of vasoconstriction / synaptic transmission
Components

General Function
Potassium channel regulator activity
Specific Function
Regulatory subunit of the calcium activated potassium KCNMA1 (maxiK) channel. Modulates the calcium sensitivity and gating kinetics of KCNMA1, thereby contributing to KCNMA1 channel diversity. Decreases the gating kinetics and calcium sensitivity of the KCNMA1 channel, but with fast deactivation kinetics. May decrease KCNMA1 channel openings at low calcium concentrations but increases channel openings at high calcium concentrations. Makes KCNMA1 channel resistant to 100 nM charybdotoxin (CTX) toxin concentrations.
