Kir7.1 (extracellular) Antibody

Affinity purified polyclonal antibody

  • WB - Kir7.1 (extracellular) Antibody AG1402-025
    Western blot analysis of rat brain membrane (lanes 1 and 4), mouse brain (lanes 2 and 5) and mouse kidney lysates (lanes 3 and 6):
    1-3. Anti-Kir7.1 (extracellular) antibody (#AG1402), (1:200).
    4-6. Anti-Kir7.1 (extracellular) antibody, preincubated with the control peptide antigen.
  • IHC - Kir7.1 (extracellular) Antibody AG1402-025
    Expression of Kir7.1 in rat kidney Immunohistochemical staining of paraffin embedded section of rat kidney using Anti-Kir7.1 (extracellular) antibody (#AG1402), (1:100). Staining is present in both distal (DT) and proximal (PT) tubules and in the collecting ducts (CD) in the renal cortex. Note that staining is absent both in glomeruli (Gl) and blood vessels (arrow). Hematoxilin is used as the counterstain.
  • FC - Kir7.1 (extracellular) Antibody AG1402-025
    Indirect flow cytometry analysis of  live intact Jurkat (human T cell leukemia) cell line: ___ Cells + Goat-anti-Rabbit-FITC.
    Black Cells + Anti-Kir7.1 (extracellular) antibody (#AG1402), (1:20) + Goat-anti-Rabbit-FITC.

Kir7.1 (KCNJ13) is a member of the family of inward rectifying K+ channels. The family includes 15 members that are structurally and functionally different from the voltage-dependent K+ channels.   The family’s protein topology consists of two transmembrane domains that flank a single and highly conserved pore region with intracellular N- and C-termini. As is the case for the voltage-dependent K+ channels the functional unit for the Kir channels is composed of four subunits that can assembly as either homo or heteromers.   Kir channels are characterized by a K+ efflux that is limited by depolarizing membrane potentials thus making them essential for controlling resting membrane potential and K+ homeostasis1.   Kir7.1, an inwardly rectifying K+ channel with unusual permeation properties is localized in epithelial cells of the thyroid, small intestine, kidney tubules, choroid plexus and in retinal pigment epithelium (RPE), where it forms a major component of the apical membrane K+ conductance2. A mutation in the gene encoding the channel was found to cause snowflake vitreoretinal degeneration (SVD) which is a developmental and progressive hereditary eye disorder that affects multiple tissues within the eye3.   Abgent is pleased to offer a highly specific antibody directed against an epitope located at the extracellular loop domain of the rat Kir7.1 channel. Anti-Kir7.1 (extracellular) antibody (#AG1402) can be used in Western blot, immunohistochemical and indirect flow cytometry applications, and was designed to recognize Kir7.1 from rat, mouse and human samples.
