|Immunogen||A synthetic peptide from the c-terminal region of human Sodium channel protein type 9 subunit alpha (SCN9A, Nav1.7) conjugated to an immunogenic carrier protein was used as the immunogen.|
|Description||FUNCTION: Mediates the voltage-dependent sodium ion permeability of excitable membranes. Assuming opened or closed conformations in response to the voltage difference across the membrane, the protein forms a sodium-selective channel through which Na+ ions may pass in accordance with their electrochemical gradient. It is a tetrodotoxin-sensitive Na+ channel isoform. Plays a role in pain mechanisms, especially in the development of inflammatory pain. Tissue specificity: Expressed strongly in dorsal root ganglion, with only minor levels elsewhere in the body, smooth muscle cells, MTC cell line and C-cell carcinoma. Isoform 1 is expressed preferentially in the central and peripheral nervous system while isoform 2 is expressed preferentially in the dorsal root ganglion. SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. Note: In neurite terminals Also known as: Sodium channel protein type IX subunit alpha, Voltage-gated sodium channel subunit alpha Nav1.7, Neuroendocrine sodium channel, Peripheral sodium channel 1, SCN9A, NENA, PN1.|
|Specificity||Appears to be specific for SCN9A.|
|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.|
|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.|
