The sterol (dexamethasone, aldosterone) and low NaCl diet-inducible FXYD domain-containing ion transport regulator 4 precursor (Channel inducing factor, CHIF). It is an IsK-like MinK homologue (Attali et al., 1995). It regulates the Na+,K+-ATPase and the KCNQ1 channel protein as well as other ICNQ channels, opening them at all membrane potentials (Jespersen et al. 2006). CHIF as an indirect modulator of several different ion transport mechanisms, consistent with regulation of the Na+-K+-ATPase as the common denominator (Goldschmidt et al. 2004).
