|Other Names||Sodium channel protein type 5 subunit alpha, HH1, Sodium channel protein cardiac muscle subunit alpha, Sodium channel protein type V subunit alpha, Voltage-gated sodium channel subunit alpha Nav1.5, SCN5A|
|Format||0.5 mg/ml in Tris saline, 0.02% sodium azide, pH7.3 with 0.5% bovine serum albumin|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||SCN5A (aa1021-1034) Antibody (internal region) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||This protein 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-resistant Na(+) channel isoform. This channel is responsible for the initial upstroke of the action potential. Channel inactivation is regulated by intracellular calcium levels.|
|Cellular Location||Membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Found in jejunal circular smooth muscle cells (at protein level). Expressed in human atrial and ventricular cardiac muscle but not in adult skeletal muscle, brain, myometrium, liver, or spleen. Isoform 4 is expressed in brain|
