|Application ||WB, E|
|Other Accession||P15384, P16390, NP_002223.3|
|Calculated MW||63842 Da|
|Antigen Region||239-268 aa|
|Other Names||Potassium voltage-gated channel subfamily A member 3, HGK5, HLK3, HPCN3, Voltage-gated K(+) channel HuKIII, Voltage-gated potassium channel subunit Kv13, KCNA3, HGK5|
|Target/Specificity||This KCNA3 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 239-268 amino acids from the Central region of human KCNA3.|
|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||KCNA3 Antibody (Center) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Mediates the voltage-dependent potassium ion permeability of excitable membranes. Assuming opened or closed conformations in response to the voltage difference across the membrane, the protein forms a potassium-selective channel through which potassium ions may pass in accordance with their electrochemical gradient.|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein|

Potassium channels represent the most complex class of voltage-gated ion channels from both functional and structural standpoints. Their diverse functions include regulating neurotransmitter release, heart rate, insulin secretion, neuronal excitability, epithelial electrolyte transport, smooth muscle contraction, and cell volume. Four sequence-related potassium channel genes - shaker, shaw, shab, and shal - have been identified in Drosophila, and each has been shown to have human homolog(s). This gene encodes a member of the potassium channel, voltage-gated, shaker-related subfamily. This member contains six membrane-spanning domains with a shaker-type repeat in the fourth segment. It belongs to the delayed rectifier class, members of which allow nerve cells to efficiently repolarize following an action potential. It plays an essential role in T-cell proliferation and activation. This gene appears to be intronless and it is clustered together with KCNA2 and KCNA10 genes on chromosome 1.
