|Application ||WB, IHC-P, E|
|Calculated MW||47410 Da|
|Antigen Region||108-139 aa|
|Other Names||Gap junction alpha-3 protein, Connexin-46, Cx46, GJA3|
|Target/Specificity||This GJA3 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 108-139 amino acids from the N-terminal region of human GJA3.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is prepared by Saturated Ammonium Sulfate (SAS) precipitation followed by dialysis against PBS.|
|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||GJA3 Antibody (N-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||One gap junction consists of a cluster of closely packed pairs of transmembrane channels, the connexons, through which materials of low MW diffuse from one cell to a neighboring cell.|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. Cell junction, gap junction|

GJA3, an integral membrane protein, belong to the connexin family, alpha-type (group II) subfamily. One gap junction consists of a cluster of closely packed pairs of transmembrane channels, the connexons, through which materials of low MW diffuse from one cell to a neighboring cell. A connexon is composed of a hexamer of connexins. This particular connexin is a component of lens fiber gap junctions, can form both junctional and nonjunctional ('hemi-') channels. Defects in GJA3 are the cause of zonular pulverulent cataract type 3 (CZP3), a form of autosomal dominant congenital cataract.
