- CITATIONS: 3
|Application ||WB, IHC-P, E|
|Calculated MW||231708 Da|
|Antigen Region||317-348 aa|
|Other Names||Transient receptor potential cation channel subfamily M member 6, Channel kinase 2, Melastatin-related TRP cation channel 6, TRPM6, CHAK2|
|Target/Specificity||This TRPM6 (CHAK2) antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 317-348 amino acids from the Central region of human TRPM6 (CHAK2).|
|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||TRPM6 (CHAK2) Antibody (Center) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Essential ion channel and serine/threonine-protein kinase. Crucial for magnesium homeostasis. Has an important role in epithelial magnesium transport and in the active magnesium absorption in the gut and kidney. Isoforms of the type M6-kinase lack the ion channel region.|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Highly expressed in kidney and colon. Isoform TRPM6a and isoform TRPM6b, are coexpressed with TRPM7 in kidney, and testis, and are also found in several cell lines of lung origin. Isoform TRPM6c is detected only in testis and in NCI-H510A small cell lung carcinoma cells|
Provided below are standard protocols that you may find useful for product applications.
CHAK2 is a member of the ion channel proteins. It regulates the calcium concentration in cells, which is imperative for such functions as muscle contractions and neuronal firing. It is also upregulated in certain forms of cancer and could play a role in diabetes.
