    1. Anti-Cav3.2 antibody (#AG1352), (1:200).
    2. Anti-Cav3.2 antibody, preincubated with the control peptide antigen.
  • IHC - CaV3.2 Antibody AG1352-025
    Expression of Cav3.2 in mouse cerebellum
    Immunohistochemical staining of mouse cerebellum frozen sections with Anti-Cav3.2 antibody (#AG1352), (1:100). A. Cav3.2 appears adjacent to Purkinje cells and in fibers in the molecular layer (red). B. Staining of Purkinje cells with mouse anti-parvalbumin (PV, green). C. Merged image of panels A and B demonstrates presence of Cav3.2 adjacent to Purkinje cells.
  • IHC - CaV3.2 Antibody AG1352-025
    Expression of CaV3.2 in rat DRG
    Immunohistochemical staining of rat dorsal root ganglion (DRG) frozen sections with Anti-CaV3.2 antibody (#AG1352), (1:50). Staining is specific for DRG. Note that neither glial cells nor axonal fibers are stained. Hoechst 33342  is used as the counterstain.

T-type Ca2+ channels play an important role in many cellular processes such as hormone secretion, neurotransmitter release and cell differentiation.  T-type channels are also known to participate in the pacemaker activities of heart and neurons including thalamic neurons.1 Three genes encoding T-type Ca2+ channels have been cloned and designated as Cav3.2 (α1H), Cav3.1 (α1G) and Cav3.3 (α1I).1-3  The Cav3.2  (α1H) channel is widely expressed in various tissues, brain, heart, liver and testis. Involvement of Cav3.2 Ca2+ channels in several pathologies has been described. Overexpression of the Cav3.2 channel was described in prostate cancer cells that are associated with more aggressiveness, invasiveness and poor prognosis.4 Several point mutations discovered in the Cav3.2 channel that affect gating of the channel were found to be associated with Childhood Absence Epilepsy.5 One year old mice, deficient in Cav3.2 channel, exhibited severe cardiac pathology, fibrosis, necrosis, lymphocyte infiltration and abnormal coronary function compared to wild-type mice. Recently, it has been demonstrated that T-type channels are expressed in DRG neurons and that small and medium-diameter primary afferent neurons in the dorsal horn expresses almost exclusively the Cav3.2 Ca2+channels. This might indicate a possible role for Cav3.2 in nociception.7
