Physiological Functions
KV1.7 plays an important role in the repolarization of cell membranes.
Species:  Human
Tissue:  Cell membrane.
References:  5
KV1.7 has properties similar to the ultra-rapidly activating IKur current in the heart.

General Comments
Can co-assemble with other KV1 family members in heteromultimers, but not with members of other KV families. Unlike the other known Kv1 family members, the gene for Kv1.7 has a 1.9Kb intron in the coding region [1,4-5].
