|Application ||WB, IHC-P, E|
|Other Accession||Q63664, P97794, NP_004973.1|
|Calculated MW||47968 Da|
|Antigen Region||4-33 aa|
|Other Names||ATP-sensitive inward rectifier potassium channel 8, Inward rectifier K(+) channel Kir61, Potassium channel, inwardly rectifying subfamily J member 8, uKATP-1, KCNJ8|
|Target/Specificity||This KCNJ8 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 4-33 amino acids from the N-terminal region of human KCNJ8.|
|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||KCNJ8 Antibody (N-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||This potassium channel is controlled by G proteins. Inward rectifier potassium channels are characterized by a greater tendency to allow potassium to flow into the cell rather than out of it. Their voltage dependence is regulated by the concentration of extracellular potassium; as external potassium is raised, the voltage range of the channel opening shifts to more positive voltages. The inward rectification is mainly due to the blockage of outward current by internal magnesium. Can be blocked by external barium (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein.|
|Tissue Location||Predominantly detected in fetal and adult heart.|

Potassium channels are present in most mammalian cells, where they participate in a wide range of physiologic responses. The protein encoded by this gene is an integral membrane protein and inward-rectifier type potassium channel. The encoded protein, which has a greater tendency to allow potassium to flow into a cell rather than out of a cell, is controlled by G-proteins. [provided by RefSeq].
