|Target/Specificity||The antibody is specific for chromogranin A. Specificity was ascertained by immunoblotting and immunohistochemistry. The antibody predominantly reacts with a 68 kD protein. Antigen was isolated from human Pheochromocytoma. Antigen location, cytoplasm ...|
|Reconstitution & Storage||Short term 4°C, long term aliquot and store at -20°C, avoid freeze thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||CHGA / Chromogranin A Antibody (clone LK2H10) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Pancreastatin: Strongly inhibits glucose induced insulin release from the pancreas. Serpinin: Regulates granule biogenesis in endocrine cells by up-regulating the transcription of protease nexin 1 (SERPINE2) via a cAMP-PKA-SP1 pathway. This leads to inhibition of granule protein degradation in the Golgi complex which in turn promotes granule formation.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasmic vesicle, secretory vesicle lumen. Cytoplasmic vesicle, secretory vesicle membrane. Secreted. Note=Associated with the secretory granule membrane through direct interaction to SCG3 that in turn binds to cholesterol-enriched lipid rafts in intragranular conditions.|
|Tissue Location||GE-25 is found in the brain.|
