|Other Names||Sodium/potassium-transporting ATPase subunit alpha-1, Na(+)/K(+) ATPase alpha-1 subunit, Sodium pump subunit alpha-1, ATP1A1|
|Target/Specificity||A synthetic peptide corresponding to residues near the N-terminus of human Na+/K+ ATPase α was used as an immungen.|
|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||Na+/K+ ATPase Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||This is the catalytic component of the active enzyme, which catalyzes the hydrolysis of ATP coupled with the exchange of sodium and potassium ions across the plasma membrane. This action creates the electrochemical gradient of sodium and potassium ions, providing the energy for active transport of various nutrients.|

Na+, K+-ATPase is a heterodimeric enzyme responsible for the active maintenance of sodium and potassium gradients across the plasma membrane (1). The sodium- and potassium-dependent adenosine triphosphatase (Na+,K(+)-ATPase) maintains the transmembrane Na+ gradient to which is coupled all active cellular transport systems (2). It is well accepted that inhibition of the Na,K-ATPase in the heart, through effects on the Na/Ca exchanger, raises the intracellular Ca2+ concentration and strengthens cardiac contraction. Assessing the phenotypes of mouse hearts with genetically reduced levels of Na,K-ATPase alpha 1 or alpha 2 isoforms clearly demonstrates different functional roles for these isoforms in vivo. Results definitively illustrate a specific role for the alpha 2 Na,K-ATPase isoform in Ca2+ signaling during cardiac contraction (3).
