|Application ||IHC-P, WB, E|
|Calculated MW||41092 Da|
|Antigen Region||313-341 aa|
|Other Names||Protein RIC-3, Resistant to inhibitor of cholinesterase 3, RIC3|
|Target/Specificity||This RIC3 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 313-341 amino acids from the C-terminal region of human RIC3.|
|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||RIC3 Antibody (C-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Promotes functional expression of homomeric alpha-7 and alpha-8 nicotinic acetylcholine receptors at the cell surface. May also promote functional expression of homomeric serotoninergic 5- HT3 receptors, and of heteromeric acetylcholine receptors alpha- 3/beta-2, alpha-3/beta-4, alpha-4/beta-2 and alpha-4/beta-4.|
|Cellular Location||Isoform 1: Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Single-pass membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Broadly expressed, with high levels in muscle, brain, heart, pancreas and testis. In the central nervous system, highest levels are detected in the cerebellum and pituitary gland Over-expressed in brains from patients with bipolar disease or schizophrenia. Isoform 5 is predominantly expressed in the brain|

RIC3 is a protein associated with nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs), neurotransmitter-gated ion channels expressed at the neuromuscular junction and within the central and peripheral nervous systems, that can enhance functional expression of multiple nAChR subtypes (Lansdell et al., 2005 [PubMed 16120769]).[supplied by OMIM].
