Pathways 
According to Reactome, this protein belongs to the following pathways:
Glucagon-like Peptide-1 (GLP1) regulates insulin secretion  REACT_18274  
Voltage gated Potassium channels  REACT_75770  
Note 
Heterodimers with KCNB1 are highly sensitive to inhibition by tetraethylammonium (TEA) and propafenone.
