|Application ||WB, IHC-P, E|
|Calculated MW||57668 Da|
|Antigen Region||440-469 aa|
|Other Names||Regulator of G-protein signaling 7, RGS7, RGS7|
|Target/Specificity||This RGS7 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 440-469 amino acids from the C-terminal region of human RGS7.|
|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||RGS7 Antibody (C-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Regulates G protein-coupled receptor signaling cascades. Inhibits signal transduction by increasing the GTPase activity of G protein alpha subunits, thereby driving them into their inactive GDP-bound form (PubMed:10521509, PubMed:10862767). The RGS7/GNB5 dimer enhances GNAO1 GTPase activity (PubMed:10521509). May play a role in synaptic vesicle exocytosis (PubMed:12659861). Modulates the activity of potassium channels that are activated by GNAO1 in response to muscarinic acetylcholine receptor M2/CHRM2 signaling (PubMed:15897264).|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm, cytosol. Cytoplasm. Cell membrane. Membrane; Peripheral membrane protein; Cytoplasmic side Note=Interaction with PKD1 promotes location at the cell membrane (PubMed:10339594). Interaction with RGS7BP promotes location at the cell membrane (PubMed:15897264).|

RGS7 inhibits signal transduction by increasing the GTPase activity of G protein alpha subunits thereby driving them into their inactive GDP-bound form. Activity on G(o)-alpha is specifically enhanced by the RGS6/GNG5 dimer. May play a role in synaptic vesicle exocytosis. May play important role in the rapid regulation of neuronal excitability and the cellular responses to short-lived stimulations (By similarity).
