KV6.1 (extracellular) Antibody

Affinity purified polyclonal antibody

  • WB - KV6.1 (extracellular) Antibody AG1082-050
    Western blot analysis of rat (lanes 1 and 3) and mouse (lanes 2 and 4) brain membranes:
    1-2. Anti-KV6.1 (extracellular) antibody (#AG1082), (1:400).
    3-4. Anti-KV6.1 (extracellular) antibody, preincubated with the control peptide antigen.
  • IHC - KV6.1 (extracellular) Antibody AG1082-050
    Expression of KV6.1 in rat cerebellum
    Immunohistochemical staining of immersion-fixed, free floating rat brain frozen sections using Anti-KV6.1 (extracellular) antibody (#AG1082), (1:200). A. KV6.1 is detected in rat cerebellum (red). Staining is apparent in Purkinje neurons (arrow) and in the molecular layer (Mol). B. Cell nuclei in the same section are stained with DAPI (blue). C. Merge of the two images.

Voltage-gated K+ channels are transmembrane proteins consisting of four α-subunits arranged in a radially symmetric fashion around a central aqueous pore. Each α-subunit consists of six transmembrane segments (S1-S6) with cytoplasmic NH2- and COOH-termini.   In mammals, a large family of genes encodes α-subunits: KV1 (homologous to Drosophila Shaker), KV2 (Shab), KV3 (Shaw), KV4 (Shal), KV5, KV6, and KV91. The sparsely populated KV channel subfamilies KV5 and KV6 each contain one member, KV5.1 and KV6.12. KV6 channels are electrically silent and no functional role has been suggested for these channels3. A recent study found that KV6.1 forms functional channels specifically with KV2.13. It was also found that KV2.1 and KV6.1 mRNAs colocalize to the piriform cortex, hippocampus, dendate gyrus and olfactory tubercle in the brain4 and to SA node, atria and ventricle in the heart5. This suggests that KV6.1 may be physiologically important in generating an increased number of KV channel phenotypes even though it does not itself form functional homomultimeric channels3.  Another study found that KV6.1 regulates the kinetics of KV2.2 channels. KV2.1/6.1 coexpression results in channels with markedly slower inactivation during strong depolarization but faster inactivation at intermediate potentials1
