|Antigen Region||563-592 aa|
|Other Names||P2X purinoceptor 7, P2X7, ATP receptor, P2Z receptor, Purinergic receptor, P2RX7|
|Target/Specificity||This P2RX7 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 563-592 amino acids of human P2RX7.|
|Precautions||P2RX7 Antibody (C-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Receptor for ATP that acts as a ligand-gated ion channel. Responsible for ATP-dependent lysis of macrophages through the formation of membrane pores permeable to large molecules. Could function in both fast synaptic transmission and the ATP-mediated lysis of antigen-presenting cells.|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Widely expressed with highest levels in brain and immune tissues.|
Provided below are standard protocols that you may find useful for product applications.
P2RX7 belongs to the family of purinoceptors for ATP. This receptor functions as a ligand-gated ion channel and is responsible for ATP-dependent lysis of macrophages through the formation of membrane pores permeable to large molecules. Activation of this nuclear receptor by ATP in the cytoplasm may be a mechanism by which cellular activity can be coupled to changes in gene expression.
