|Application ||WB, E|
|Calculated MW||23420 Da|
|Antigen Region||29-57 aa|
|Other Names||Guanylyl cyclase-activating protein 2, GCAP 2, Guanylate cyclase activator 1B, GUCA1B, GCAP2|
|Target/Specificity||This GUCA1B antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 29-57 amino acids from the N-terminal region of human GUCA1B.|
|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||GUCA1B Antibody(N-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Stimulates guanylyl cyclase 1 (GC1) and GC2 when free calcium ions concentration is low, and GC1 and GC2 when free calcium ions concentration is elevated. This Ca(2+)-sensitive regulation of GC is a key event in recovery of the dark state of rod photoreceptors following light exposure.|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane. Note=Membranes of outer segment|
|Tissue Location||Retina. Cones and rod.|

The protein encoded by this gene is a calcium-binding protein that activates photoreceptor guanylate cyclases. This gene may have arisen due to a gene duplication event since there is a highly similar gene clustered with it on chromosome 6. Mutations in this gene can cause a form of retinitis pigmentosa.
