Immunogen A synthetic peptide from a cytoplasmic domain of human CACNA1A (Brain calcium channel I, Cav2.1) conjugated to an immunogenic carrier protein was used as the immunogen. The antigen shares 87% identity with mouse and rat sequence.
Specificity Appears to be specific for CACNA1A.
Purity whole serum
Alternative Name CACNA1A (Cav2.1)
Background Function: Voltage-sensitive calcium channels (VSCC) mediate the entry of calcium ions into excitable cells and are also involved in a variety of calcium-dependent processes, including muscle contraction, hormone or neurotransmitter release, gene expression, cell motility, cell division and cell death. The isoform alpha-1A gives rise to P and/or Q-type calcium currents. P/Q-type calcium channels belong to the 'high-voltage activated' (HVA) group and are blocked by the funnel toxin (Ftx) and by the omega-agatoxin-IVA (omega-Aga-IVA). They are however insensitive to dihydropyridines (DHP), and omega-conotoxin-GVIA (omega-CTx-GVIA).
Subcellular location: Membrane, Multi-pass membrane protein.
Tissue specificity: Brain specific, mainly found in cerebellum, cerebral cortex, thalamus and hypothalamus. No expression in heart, kidney, liver or muscle. Purkinje cells contain predominantly P-type VSCC, the Q-type being a prominent calcium current in cerebellar granule cells. Also known as: BI, Brain calcium channel I, Cach4, Cacn3, Cacna1a, Cacnl1a4, Calcium channel L type alpha-1 polypeptide, Voltage-dependent P/Q-type calcium channel alpha-1A subunit, Voltage-gated calcium channel alpha subunit Cav2.1.
