|Other Accession||O76081, NP_003693, NM_003702|
|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat, Guinea Pig, Horse|
|Predicted||Human, Mouse, Rat, Guinea Pig, Horse|
|Calculated MW||27 kDa|
|Alias Symbol||RGSZ1, ZGAP1|
|Other Names||Regulator of G-protein signaling 20, RGS20, Gz-selective GTPase-activating protein, G(z)GAP, Gz-GAP, Regulator of G-protein signaling Z1, Regulator of Gz-selective protein signaling 1, RGS20, RGSZ1, ZGAP1|
|Target/Specificity||The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the family of regulator of G protein signaling (RGS) proteins, which are regulatory and structural components of G protein-coupled receptor complexes. RGS proteins inhibit signal transduction by increasing the GTPase activity of G protein alpha subunits, thereby driving them into their inactive GDP-bound forms. This protein selectively binds to G(z)-alpha and G(alpha)-i2 subunits, and regulates their signaling activities. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.|
|Format||Liquid. Purified antibody supplied in 1x PBS buffer with 0.09% (w/v) sodium azide and 2% sucrose.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||Add 50 ul of distilled water. Final anti-RGS20 antibody concentration is 1 mg/ml in PBS buffer with 2% sucrose. For longer periods of storage, store at -20°C. Avoid repeat freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||RGS20 antibody - N-terminal region is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Inhibits signal transduction by increasing the GTPase activity of G protein alpha subunits thereby driving them into their inactive GDP-bound form. Binds selectively to G(z)-alpha and G(alpha)-i2 subunits, accelerates their GTPase activity and regulates their signaling activities. The G(z)-alpha activity is inhibited by the phosphorylation and palmitoylation of the G- protein. Negatively regulates mu-opioid receptor-mediated activation of the G-proteins (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Membrane; Lipid-anchor. Nucleus. Cytoplasm. Note=Shuttles between the cytoplasm/cell membrane and the nucleus Anchored to the membrane through palmitoylation.|
|Tissue Location||Isoform 5 is expressed in brain at high levels in the caudate nucleus and temporal lobe|
