Immunogen A synthetic peptide from the cytoplasmic domain of human KCNJ6 (GIRK2, Kir3.2, KATP2, KCNJ7) conjugated to an immunogenic carrier protein was used as the immunogen. The antigen is homologous in rat and mouse.
Specificity Appears to be specific for KCNJ6.
Purity whole serum
Alternative Name KCNJ6 (GIRK2, Kir3.2, KATP2, KCNJ7)
Background Function: This potassium channel may be involved in the regulation of insulin secretion by glucose and/or neurotransmitters acting through G-protein-coupled receptors. 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.
Tissue specificity: Most abundant in cerebellum, and to a lesser degree in islets and exocrine pancreas.
Subcellular location: Membrane, Multi-pass membrane protein. Also known as: G protein-activated inward rectifier potassium channel 2, GIRK2, Potassium channel, inwardly rectifying subfamily J member 6, Inward rectifier K(+) channel Kir3.2, KATP-2, BIR1, KATP2, KCNJ7.
UniProt P48051
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 yet tested in other applications.
