Immunogen A synthetic peptide from the c-terminal region of human KCNJ11 (Kir6.2) conjugated to an immunogenic carrier protein was used as the antigen. The antigen shares 94% identity with rat and mouse sequence.
Specificity Specific for KCNJ11.
Purification Whole serum
Alternative Name KCNJ11 (KCNJ11 Antibody Abstract)
Background Function: This receptor is controlled by G proteins. Inward rectifier potassium channels are characterized by a greater tendency to allow potassium to flow into the cell rather than out of it. Their voltage dependence is regulated by the concentration of extracellular potassium, as external potassium is raised, the voltage range of the channel opening shifts to more positive voltages. The inward rectification is mainly due to the blockage of outward current by internal magnesium. Can be blocked by extracellular barium. Defects in KCNJ11 are the cause of familial hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia type 2 (HHF2), also known as persistent hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia of infancy (PPHI) or hyperinsulinism. HHF2 is the most common cause of persistent hypoglycemia in infancy and is due to defective negative feedback regulation of insulin secretion by low glucose levels. It causes nesidioblastosis, a diffuse abnormality of the pancreas in which there is extensive, often disorganized formation of new islets. Unless early and aggressive intervention is undertaken, brain damage from recurrent episodes of hypoglycemia may occur.
Subcellular location: Membrane, Multi-pass membrane protein. Also known as: ATP-sensitive inward rectifier potassium channel 11, Potassium channel, inwardly rectifying subfamily J member 11, Inward rectifier K(+) channel Kir6.2, IKATP.
Application Notes A dilution of 1 : 300 to 1 : 2000 is recommended.

Format Lyophilized
Reconstitution Reconstitute in 500 µL of sterile water. Centrifuge to remove any insoluble material.
Handling Advice Avoid freeze and thaw cycles.
Storage 4 °C/-20 °C
Storage Comment 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.
