|Application ||WB, IHC-P, FC, E|
|Other Accession||P51638, Q3ZDQ5, P51637, Q2KI43|
|Predicted||Bovine, Mouse, Pig, Rat|
|Calculated MW||17259 Da|
|Antigen Region||5-31 aa|
|Other Names||Caveolin-3, M-caveolin, CAV3|
|Target/Specificity||This CAV3 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 5-31 amino acids from the N-terminal region of human CAV3.|
|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||CAV3 Antibody (N-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||May act as a scaffolding protein within caveolar membranes. Interacts directly with G-protein alpha subunits and can functionally regulate their activity. May also regulate voltage-gated potassium channels. Plays a role in the sarcolemma repair mechanism of both skeletal muscle and cardiomyocytes that permits rapid resealing of membranes disrupted by mechanical stress.|
|Cellular Location||Golgi apparatus membrane; Peripheral membrane protein. Cell membrane; Peripheral membrane protein Membrane, caveola; Peripheral membrane protein. Note=Potential hairpin-like structure in the membrane. Membrane protein of caveolae (By similarity)|
|Tissue Location||Expressed predominantly in muscle.|

CAV3 is a caveolin family member, which functions as a component of the caveolae plasma membranes found in most cell types. Caveolin proteins are proposed to be scaffolding proteins for organizing and concentrating certain caveolin-interacting molecules. Mutations identified in its gene lead to interference with protein oligomerization or intra-cellular routing, disrupting caveolae formation and resulting in Limb-Girdle muscular dystrophy type-1C (LGMD-1C), hyperCKemia or rippling muscle disease (RMD).
