|Application ||WB, IHC-P, E|
|Other Accession||Q8R523, P59053|
|Calculated MW||49593 Da|
|Antigen Region||6-34 aa|
|Other Names||Potassium voltage-gated channel subfamily G member 3, Voltage-gated potassium channel subunit Kv101, Voltage-gated potassium channel subunit Kv63, KCNG3|
|Target/Specificity||This KCNG3 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 6-34 amino acids from the N-terminal region of human KCNG3.|
|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||KCNG3 Antibody (N-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Potassium channel subunit that does not form functional channels by itself (PubMed:11852086). Can form functional heterotetrameric channels with KCNB1; this promotes a reduction in the rate of activation and inactivation of the delayed rectifier voltage-gated potassium channel KCNB1 (PubMed:11852086, PubMed:19074135).|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Multi- pass membrane protein. Cytoplasm. Note=Has to be associated with KCNB1 or possibly another partner to get inserted in the plasma membrane (PubMed:12060745). Colocalizes with KCNB1 at the plasma membrane (PubMed:12060745, PubMed:19074135). Remains intracellular in the absence of KCNB1 (PubMed:12060745)|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in the brain, liver, testis, small intestine, colon, thymus and adrenal gland (PubMed:11852086, PubMed:12060745).|

Voltage-gated potassium (Kv) 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. This gene encodes a member of the potassium channel, voltage-gated, subfamily G. This member is a gamma subunit functioning as a modulatory molecule.
