|Calculated MW||10645 Da|
|Antigen Region||32-61 aa|
|Other Names||Selenoprotein K, SelK, SELK|
|Target/Specificity||This SELK antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 32-61 amino acids from the Central region of human SELK.|
|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||SELK Antibody (Center) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Required for Ca(2+) flux in immune cells and plays a role in T-cell proliferation and in T-cell and neutrophil migration. Involved in endoplasmic reticulum-associated degradation (ERAD) of soluble glycosylated proteins. Required for palmitoylation and cell surface expression of CD36 and involved in macrophage uptake of low-density lipoprotein and in foam cell formation. Plays a role in protection of cells from ER stress- induced apoptosis. Protects cells from oxidative stress when overexpressed in cardiomyocytes.|
|Cellular Location||Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Single-pass membrane protein. Cell membrane; Single-pass membrane protein. Note=Probably mainly localized in the ER.|
|Tissue Location||Highly expressed in heart.|

This gene encodes a selenoprotein, which contains a selenocysteine (Sec) residue at its active site. The selenocysteine is encoded by the UGA codon that normally signals translation termination. The 3' UTR of selenoprotein genes have a common stem-loop structure, the sec insertion sequence (SECIS), that is necessary for the recognition of UGA as a Sec codon rather than as a stop signal. This selenoprotein is localized to the endoplasmic reticulum and is highly expressed in the heart, where it may function as an antioxidant.
