|Immunogen||A synthetic peptide from a cytoplasmic domain of human CACNA1H & CACNA1G (Cav3.2, Cav3.1) conjugated to an immunogenic carrier protein was used as the immunogen. The antigen shares 95% identity with the corresponding sequences in rat and mouse.|
|Description||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-1H gives rise to T-type calcium currents. T-type calcium channels belong to the "low-voltage activated (LVA)" group and are strongly blocked by nickel and mibefradil. A particularity of this type of channels is an opening at quite negative potentials, and a voltage-dependent inactivation. T-type channels serve pacemaking functions in both central neurons and cardiac nodal cells and support calcium signaling in secretory cells and vascular smooth muscle. They may also be involved in the modulation of firing patterns of neurons which is important for information processing as well as in cell growth processes. Subcellular location: Membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. Tissue specificity (CACNA1H): Expressed in kidney, liver, heart, brain. Isoform 2 seems to be testis-specific. Tissue specificity (CACNA1G): Highly expressed in brain, in particular in the amygdala, subthalamic nuclei, cerebellum and thalamus. Moderate expression in heart; low expression in placenta, kidney and lung. Also expressed in colon and bone marrow and in tumoral cells to a lesser extent. Highly expressed in fetal brain, but also in peripheral fetal tissues as heart, kidney and lung, suggesting a developmentally regulated expression. Also known as: Voltage-dependent T-type calcium channel subunit alpha-1H, Voltage-gated calcium channel subunit alpha Cav3.2, Low-voltage-activated calcium channel alpha1 3.2 subunit. Voltage-dependent T-type calcium channel subunit alpha-1G, Voltage-gated calcium channel subunit alpha Cav3.1, Cav3.1c, NBR13.|
|Specificity||Appears to be specific for CACNA1H and CACNA1G.|
|Application Notes||IHC, WB. A dilution of 1 : 300 to 1 : 2000 is recommended. The optimal dilution should be determined by the end user. Not tested in other applications.|
|Storage||Maintain the lyophilised/reconstituted antibodies frozen at -20°C for long term storage and refrigerated at 2-8°C for a shorter term. When reconstituting, glycerol (1:1) may be added for an additional stability. Avoid freeze and thaw cycles.|
