|Application ||WB, IHC-P, E|
|Calculated MW||65999 Da|
|Antigen Region||131-160 aa|
|Other Names||Cyclic nucleotide-gated cation channel alpha-4, Cyclic nucleotide-gated channel alpha-4, CNG channel alpha-4, CNG-4, CNG4, CNGA4|
|Target/Specificity||This CNGA4 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 131-160 amino acids from the N-terminal region of human CNGA4.|
|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||CNGA4 Antibody (N-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Second messenger, cAMP, causes the opening of cation- selective cyclic nucleotide-gated (CNG) channels and depolarization of the neuron (olfactory sensory neurons, OSNs). CNGA4 is the modulatory subunit of this channel which is known to play a central role in the transduction of odorant signals and subsequent adaptation. By accelerating the calcium-mediated negative feedback in olfactory signaling it allows rapid adaptation to odor stimulation and extends its range of odor detection (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein|
