|Dilution||IHC-P (10-20 µg/ml)|
|Other Names||P2X purinoceptor 7, P2X7, ATP receptor, P2Z receptor, Purinergic receptor, P2RX7|
|Target/Specificity||Human P2RX7 / P2X7. BLAST analysis of the peptide immunogen showed no homology with other human proteins, except DDX59 (56%).|
|Reconstitution & Storage||Long term: -70°C; Short term: +4°C|
|Precautions||P2RX7 / P2X7 Antibody (Internal) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Receptor for ATP that acts as a ligand-gated ion channel. Responsible for ATP-dependent lysis of macrophages through the formation of membrane pores permeable to large molecules. Could function in both fast synaptic transmission and the ATP-mediated lysis of antigen-presenting cells. In the absence of its natural ligand, ATP, functions as a scavenger receptor in the recognition and engulfment of apoptotic cells (PubMed:21821797, PubMed:23303206).|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Multi- pass membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Widely expressed with highest levels in brain and immune tissues.|
