|Application ||WB, IP|
|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat, Rabbit, Hamster, Bovine|
|Calculated MW||59024 Da|
|Application & Usage||Western Blotting (1-4 µg/ml) and for immunoprecipitation (10-20 µg/ml). However, the optimal conditions should be determined individually. The immunoaffinity purified antibody detects a 61 kDa band, corresponding to the expected molecular weight of Calcineurin A on immunoblots. A 32 kDa band can also be detected in human samples, presumably to be the cleavage product of Calcineurin A..|
|Other Names||PPP3CA, CCN1, CNA1, CALN, CALNA, CALNA1, PPP2B|
|Formulation||100 µg (0.2 mg/ml) affinity purified, rabbit anti-Calcineurin A polyclonal antibody in phosphate buffered saline (PBS), pH 7.2, containing 30% glycerol, 0.5% BSA, 0.01% thimerosal.|
|Handling||The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||-20 °C|
|Precautions||Calcineurin A Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Synonyms||CALNA2, CALNB, CNA2|
|Function||Calcium-dependent, calmodulin-stimulated protein phosphatase which plays an essential role in the transduction of intracellular Ca(2+)-mediated signals (PubMed:19154138, PubMed:26794871). Dephosphorylates and activates transcription factor NFATC1 (PubMed:19154138). Dephosphorylates and inactivates transcription factor ELK1 (PubMed:19154138). Dephosphorylates DARPP32 (PubMed:19154138).|

Calcineurin is a calcium/calmodulin-dependent serine/threonine protein phosphatase. The active enzyme is a heterodimer consisting of a catalytic A subunit of 61 kDa and a myristylated regulatory B subunit of 19 kDa that binds calcium. The catalytic A subunit consists of an amino terminal catalytic domain, followed by calmodulin and B subunit binding sites, and a caboxyl-terminal autoinhibitory domain. Calnineurin is the target of immunosuppressant dr µgs such as cyclosporin A and FK506. Calcineurin controls the translocation of nuclear factors of activated T cells (NFAT), a family of transcriptional activators that control the expression of cytokine genes essential to immune response, from the cytosol into the nucleus of activated T cells. Calcineurin has been proposed to play an important role in mediating calcium-activated cell death.
