CaV2.2 Antibody

Affinity purified rabbit polyclonal antibody

  • WB - CaV2.2  Antibody AG1460-025
    Western blot analysis of rat brain membranes: 1. Anti-CaV2.2 antibody (#AG1460), (1:200). 2. Anti-CaV2.2 antibody, preincubated with the control antigen.
  • IHC - CaV2.2  Antibody AG1460-025
    Expression of Cav2.2 in mouse cerebellum Immunohistochemical staining of mouse cerebellum with Anti-Cav2.2 antibody (#AG1460), (1:100). A. Cav2.2 (red) appears in Purkinje cells (arrows) and is distributed diffusely in the molecular layer (Mol). B. Staining of Purkinje cells with mouse anti-Calbindin 28K (green) demonstrates the restriction of Cav2.2 to cell bodies but not to dendrites in the molecular layer. C. Merged image of panels A and B.
  • ICC - CaV2.2  Antibody AG1460-025
    Expression of Cav2.2 in rat DRG primary culture Immunocytochemical staining of paraformaldehyde-fixed and permeabilized rat dorsal root ganglion (DRG) primary culture. A. Cells were stained using Anti-Cav2.2 antibody (#AG1460), (1:200) followed by goat anti-rabbit-AlexaFluor-555 secondary antibody. B. Nuclear fluorescence staining of cells using the membrane-permeable DNA dye Hoechst 33342. C. Merged images of panels A and B.

Voltage dependent Ca2+ channels (CaV channels) are pivotal players in many physiological roles such as secretion, contraction, migration and excitation.1 The voltage dependent Ca2+ channels are composed of several subunits; α1, β, α2δ and γ. CaV channels were originally divided into six physiological types: L, N, P, Q, R, and T type. The CaV2.2 (formally named α1B) composes the α1 poreforming subunit for the N type Ca2+ channel family. They are involved in neurotransmitter release from central neurons, including glutamate, γ-aminobutyric acid, acetylcholine, dopamine and noradrenaline.2 The CaV2.2 is expressed preferentially in the central nervous system, where along with CaV2.1, it is responsible for pre-synaptic Ca2+ influx and neurotransmitter release.1,3 The CaV2.2 channel is negatively regulated by many different GPCRs. There are two ways that this is done: either by directly binding Gβγ to the channel or by an indirect mechanism involving second messenger and channel phosphorylation.4 ω-Conotoxin GVIA (#C-300) is a specific blocker of Cav2.2 Ca2+ channels. It specifically blocks N-type Cav channels by binding to the Cav2.2 α1 subunit (α1B) and its action is only partially reversible.5,6
