|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||CBARA1 (aa113-126) Antibody (internal region) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Key regulator of mitochondrial calcium uniporter (MCU) required to increase calcium uptake by MCU when cytoplasmic calcium is high. MICU1 and MICU2 form a disulfide-linked heterodimer that stimulate and inhibit MCU activity, respectively. MICU1 acts as a stimulator of MCU that senses calcium level via its EF-hand domains: enhances MCU opening at high Ca(2+) concentration, allowing a rapid response of mitochondria to Ca(2+) signals generated in the cytoplasm. Regulates glucose-dependent insulin secretion in pancreatic beta-cells by regulating mitochondrial calcium uptake. Induces T-helper 1-mediated autoreactivity, which is accompanied by the release of IFNG.|
|Cellular Location||Mitochondrion inner membrane; Peripheral membrane protein. Mitochondrion intermembrane space Note=Localizes at the outer surface of the mitochondrion inner membrane|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in epithelial cell lines. Strongly expressed in epidermal keratinocytes and dermal endothelial cells|
