Inward rectifier K+ channels control resting membrane potential, cell excitability, insulin secretion and renal K+ transport. Much progress has been made in the structure and regulation, as well as the molecular identity and physiological role played by the channels. This review discusses recent advances in inward rectifier K+ channels with a special emphasis on the renal channels.
