Activator Comments
Kv9.3 / Kv2.1 form ATP-dependent delayed rectifier channels in oxygen-sensitive pulmonary myocytes.
Hypoxia blocks Kv9.3 / Kv2.1 channels [1-5]
Gating Inhibitor Comments
Kv9.3 / Kv2.1 heteromers inactivate in a fast and complete fashion from intermediate closed states but in a slow and incomplete manner from open states [2]
Kv2.1 / Kv9.3 heteromeric channels are inhibited by hypoxia in the voltage range of the PA VSMC EM [1]

General Comments
The human Kv9.3 gene is intronless across the coding region 3'-UTR and all of the analysed 5'-UTR [4]
