|Calculated MW||Predicted: 19, 28 kDa |
Observed: 29 kDa
|Application Notes||ORAI2 antibody can be used for detection of ORAI2 by Western blot at 1 - 4 µg/mL. Antibody can also be used for immunocytochemistry starting at 5 µg/mL. For immunofluorescence start at 20 µg/mL.|
|Other Names||ORAI2 Antibody: CBCIP2, C7orf19, MEM142B, TMEM142B, CBCIP2, PP1729, Protein orai-2, CAP-binding protein complex-interacting protein 2, ORAI calcium release-activated calcium modulator 2|
|Target/Specificity||ORAI2; At least two isoforms of ORAI2 are known to exist; this antibody will detect both isoforms. ORAI antibody is predicted not to cross-react with ORAI1 or ORAI3.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||ORAI2 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||ORAI2 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Synonyms||C7orf19, CBCIP2, TMEM142B|
|Function||Ca(2+) release-activated Ca(2+)-like (CRAC-like) channel subunit which mediates Ca(2+) influx and increase in Ca(2+)- selective current by synergy with the Ca(2+) sensor, STIM1.|
|Cellular Location||Membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein|

ORAI2 Antibody: Antigen stimulation of immune cells triggers Ca++ entry through Ca++ release-activated Ca++ (CRAC) channels. ORAI2 is one of two mammalian homologs to ORAI1, a recently identified four-transmembrane spanning protein that is an essential component of CRAC. Like ORAI1, ORAI2 has been shown to function as a highly selective Ca++ plasma membrane channel that is gated through interactions with STIM1, the store-activated endoplasmic reticulum Ca++ sensor, although at a lesser efficacy than ORAI1.
