|Application ||WB, IHC-P, IF, E|
|Other Accession||AAH93658, 7225|
|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Calculated MW||Predicted: 100, 102 kDa |
Observed: 93 kDa
|Application Notes||TRPC6 antibody can be used for the detection of TRPC6 by Western blot at 0.5 - 2 μg/mL. Antibody can also be used for immunohistochemistry starting at 10 μg/mL. For immunofluorescence start at 20 μg/mL.|
|Other Names||TRPC6 Antibody: TRP6, FSGS2, TRP6, Short transient receptor potential channel 6, Transient receptor protein 6, TrpC6, transient receptor potential cation channel, subfamily C, member 6|
|Target/Specificity||TRPC6 antibody was raised against a 14 amino acid synthetic peptide from near the carboxy terminus of human TRPC6.|
The immunogen is located within the last 50 amino acids of TRPC6.
|Reconstitution & Storage||TRPC6 antibody can be stored at 4℃ for three months and -20℃, stable for up to one year. As with all antibodies care should be taken to avoid repeated freeze thaw cycles. Antibodies should not be exposed to prolonged high temperatures.|
|Precautions||TRPC6 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Thought to form a receptor-activated non-selective calcium permeant cation channel. Probably is operated by a phosphatidylinositol second messenger system activated by receptor tyrosine kinases or G-protein coupled receptors. Activated by diacylglycerol (DAG) in a membrane-delimited fashion, independently of protein kinase C. Seems not to be activated by intracellular calcium store depletion.|
|Cellular Location||Membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Expressed primarily in placenta, lung, spleen, ovary and small intestine. Expressed in podocytes and is a component of the glomerular slit diaphragm|

TRPC6 Antibody: The mammalian transient receptor potential (TRP) superfamily can be divided into three major families including the "canonical TRP" (TRPC) family. The seven members of this family share the activation through PLC-coupled receptors and have been suggested to be components of receptor-regulated cation channels in different cell types. Furthermore, the members of the TRPC6/6/7 subfamily can be activated by diacylglycerol (DAG) analogs, suggesting a possible mechanism of activation of these channels by PLC-coupled receptors. When expressed in transfected cells, TRPC6 acts as a non-selective store-independent receptor-activated cation channel. It is activated by DAG in a PKC-independent manner and is insensitive to IP3 activation. There is increasing evidence that TRPC6 encodes endogenous DAG-activated receptor-operated cation channels in vivo.
