Three Ca2+ ATPases have been described in mammalian cells. They are located in the plasma membrane, endoplasmic reticulum or the Golgi apparatus. SERCA pumps are located in both the endoplasmic reticulum and in the Golgi membranes. They are known to transport two Ca2+ molecules per hydrolysis of one ATP1. Their structure includes ten transmembrane domains and their main role is to remove cytoplasmic Ca2+ ions in order to promote muscle relaxation1. In mammals three genes encode three SERCA pumps. Each transcript undergoes tissue-dependent alternative splicing. SERCA1a and 1b are expressed in adult and neonatal skeletal muscle respectively. SERCA2a is also expressed in skeletal muscle, while SERCA2b is ubiquitously expressed. SERCA3 is expressed in a limited number of non-muscle cells2. Although all SERCAs are regulated, SERCA2b undergoes extensive regulation at the protein level, such as protein-protein interaction, phosphorylation and glycosylation1. The expression of SERCA1 in mice is essential3 whereas in human its absence is tolerated but is the cause of Brody myopathy4. Malfunction of SERCAs is also observed in heart disease and different forms of cancer1. Abgent is pleased to offer a highly specific antibody directed against an epitope of rat SERCA1. Anti-SERCA1 antibody (#AG1302) can be used in western blot, immunohistochemistry and immunocytochemistry applications and was designed to recognize rat, mouse and human SERCA1.
