Potassium Channel Tetramerization Domain Containing 15 , Kctd15
KCTD15 (Potassium channel tetramerisation domain containing 15, also known as BTB/POZ domain-containing protein KCTD15) is protein that in humans is encoded by the KCTD15 gene. KCTD15 is expressed at high level in brain and hypothalamus. The potassium channel KCTD15 was identified as a genetic loci associated with higher than normal body mass index (BMI) in humans along with genes such as GNPDA2, MTCH2, FTO, and TMEM18. Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in non-diabetic and diabetic patients showed that FTO was most strongly associated with obesity while MTCH2 and GNPDA2 were still significantly associated with higher than normal BMI levels.
