|Application ||WB, IHC-P, E|
|Calculated MW||40176 Da|
|Antigen Region||140-169 aa|
|Other Names||Guanine nucleotide-binding protein G(t) subunit alpha-2, Transducin alpha-2 chain, GNAT2, GNATC|
|Target/Specificity||This GNAT2 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 140-169 amino acids from the Central region of human GNAT2.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is purified through a protein A column, followed by peptide affinity purification.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||GNAT2 Antibody (Center) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Guanine nucleotide-binding proteins (G proteins) are involved as modulators or transducers in various transmembrane signaling systems. Transducin is an amplifier and one of the transducers of a visual impulse that performs the coupling between rhodopsin and cGMP-phosphodiesterase.|
|Tissue Location||Retinal rod outer segment.|

Transducin is a 3-subunit guanine nucleotide-binding protein (G protein) which stimulates the coupling of rhodopsin and cGMP-phoshodiesterase during visual impulses. The transducin alpha subunits in rods and cones are encoded by separate genes. This gene encodes the alpha subunit in cones.
