    Western blot analysis of rat brain membrane: 1. Anti-Nav1.6 antibody (#AG1390), (1:200).
    2. Anti-Nav1.6 antibody, preincubated with the control peptide antigen.
  • IHC - NaV1.6 Antibody AG1390-025
    Expression of Nav1.6 in mouse hippocampus
    Immunohistochemical staining of mouse hippocampus using Anti-Nav1.6 antibody (#AG1390). A. Nav1.6 (green) is robustly expressed in the CA1 pyramidal layer (white arrows). B. Staining with mouse anti-parvalbumin (red), a marker of interneurons. C. merged image of panels A and B reveals that Nav1.6 appears in some interneurons (arrow) but is not restricted to interneurons. DAPI is used as the counterstain.

Voltage-gated sodium channels (NaV) are essential for the generation of action potentials and for cell excitability.1 NaV channels are activated in response to depolarization and selectively allow flow of Na+ ions. To date, nine NaV α subunits have been cloned and named NaV1.1-NaV1.9.4-5  The NaV channels are classified into two groups according to their sensitivity to Tetrodotoxin (TTX): TTX-sensitive (NaV1.1, NaV1.2, NaV1.3, NaV1.4, NaV1.6 and NaV1.7)  and TTX-resistant (NaV1.5, NaV1.8 and NaV1.9).2-3 Mammalian sodium channels are heterotrimers, composed of a central, pore-forming α subunit and two auxiliary β subunits. Expression of the α subunit isoform is developmentally regulated and tissue specific. Sodium channels in the adult central nervous system and heart contain β1 through β4 subunits, whereas sodium channels in adult skeletal muscle have only the β1 subunit.6,7   NaV1.6 is highly expressed in adult brain and localized at high density in nodes of Ranvier and axon initial segments and at lower density in dendrites and cell bodies of some neurons. NaV1.6 channels are also expressed at high levels in cerebellar Purkinje neurons.8-11
