|Application ||WB, IHC|
|Calculated MW||67568 Da|
|Other Names||Calnexin, IP90, Major histocompatibility complex class I antigen-binding protein p88, p90, CANX|
|Target/Specificity||A synthetic peptide corresponding to residues in human Calnexin was used as an immunogen.|
|Format||50 mM Tris-Glycine (pH 7.4), 0.15 M NaCl, 40% Glycerol, 0.01% sodium azide and 0.05% BSA.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||Calnexin Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Calcium-binding protein that interacts with newly synthesized glycoproteins in the endoplasmic reticulum. It may act in assisting protein assembly and/or in the retention within the ER of unassembled protein subunits. It seems to play a major role in the quality control apparatus of the ER by the retention of incorrectly folded proteins. Associated with partial T-cell antigen receptor complexes that escape the ER of immature thymocytes, it may function as a signaling complex regulating thymocyte maturation. Additionally it may play a role in receptor- mediated endocytosis at the synapse.|
|Cellular Location||Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein. Endoplasmic reticulum. Melanosome Note=Identified by mass spectrometry in melanosome fractions from stage I to stage IV (PubMed:12643545, PubMed:17081065). The palmitoylated form preferentially localizes to the perinuclear rough ER (PubMed:22314232).|

Calnexin is a calcium-binding protein that interacts with newly synthesized glycoproteins in the endoplasmic reticulum. Calnexin is suggested to act in assisting protein assembly and/or in the retention within the ER of unassembled protein subunits. Calnexin seems to play a major role in the quality control apparatus of the ER by the retention of incorrectly folded proteins (1).
