|Other Names||Calreticulin, CRP55, Calregulin, Endoplasmic reticulum resident protein 60, ERp60, HACBP, grp60, CALR, CRTC|
|Target/Specificity||A synthetic peptide corresponding to residues in human Calreticulin 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||Calreticulin Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Calcium-binding chaperone that promotes folding, oligomeric assembly and quality control in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) via the calreticulin/calnexin cycle. This lectin interacts transiently with almost all of the monoglucosylated glycoproteins that are synthesized in the ER. Interacts with the DNA-binding domain of NR3C1 and mediates its nuclear export. Involved in maternal gene expression regulation. May participate in oocyte maturation via the regulation of calcium homeostasis (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Endoplasmic reticulum lumen. Cytoplasm, cytosol. Secreted, extracellular space, extracellular matrix. Cell surface. Sarcoplasmic reticulum lumen. Note=Also found in cell surface (T cells), cytosol and extracellular matrix Associated with the lytic granules in the cytolytic T-lymphocytes|

Calreticulin is a molecular Ca+ binding chaperone promoting folding, oligomeric assembly, and quality control in ER. Calreticulin is a highly versatile lectin-like chaperone, and it participates during the synthesis of a variety of molecules, including ion channels, surface receptors, integrins and transporters (1). Calreticulin indeed provides up to 45% of the Ca2+-buffering capacity for a pool of the IP3-sensitive Ca2+ inside the ER (2). Calreticulin also functions in cell adhesion, integrin-dependent Ca2+ signaling and steroid-sensitive gene [removed]1).
