    ..1 is mainly localized in the mitochondria, endoplasmic reticulum (ER), and very weakly in cell membranes. Thus, Kir6.1 is contained in the kidney and may be a candidate of mitochondrial K(ATP) channels. ..

    ..In conclusion, the regulatory subunits of the K(ATP) channel in the rat kidney are SUR2A and SUR2B; they also are candidate regulatory subunits for the mitochondrial K(ATP) channel...
