|Application ||WB, E|
|Other Accession||P15389, Q9JJV9, NP_000326.2|
|Calculated MW||226940 Da|
|Antigen Region||42-70 aa|
|Other Names||Sodium channel protein type 5 subunit alpha, HH1, Sodium channel protein cardiac muscle subunit alpha, Sodium channel protein type V subunit alpha, Voltage-gated sodium channel subunit alpha Nav15, SCN5A|
|Target/Specificity||This SCN5A antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 42-70 amino acids from the N-terminal region of human SCN5A.|
|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||SCN5A Antibody (N-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||This protein mediates the voltage-dependent sodium ion permeability of excitable membranes. Assuming opened or closed conformations in response to the voltage difference across the membrane, the protein forms a sodium-selective channel through which Na(+) ions may pass in accordance with their electrochemical gradient. It is a tetrodotoxin-resistant Na(+) channel isoform. This channel is responsible for the initial upstroke of the action potential. Channel inactivation is regulated by intracellular calcium levels.|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Found in jejunal circular smooth muscle cells (at protein level). Expressed in human atrial and ventricular cardiac muscle but not in adult skeletal muscle, brain, myometrium, liver, or spleen. Isoform 4 is expressed in brain|

The protein encoded by this gene is an integral membrane protein and tetrodotoxin-resistant voltage-gated sodium channel subunit. This protein is found primarily in cardiac muscle and is responsible for the initial upstroke of the action potential in an electrocardiogram. Defects in this gene are a cause of long QT syndrome type 3 (LQT3), an autosomal dominant cardiac disease. Alternative splicing results in several transcript variants encoding different isoforms.
