|Precautions||STIM1 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Plays a role in mediating store-operated Ca(2+) entry (SOCE), a Ca(2+) influx following depletion of intracellular Ca(2+) stores. Acts as Ca(2+) sensor in the endoplasmic reticulum via its EF-hand domain. Upon Ca(2+) depletion, translocates from the endoplasmic reticulum to the plasma membrane where it activates the Ca(2+) release-activated Ca(2+) (CRAC) channel subunit, TMEM142A/ORAI1.|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein. Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein. Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton. Note=Translocates from the endoplasmic reticulum to the cell membrane in response to a depletion of intracellular calcium and is detected at punctae corresponding to junctions between the endoplasmic reticulum and the cell membrane. Associated with the microtubule network at the growing distal tip of microtubules|
|Tissue Location||Ubiquitously expressed in various human primary cells and tumor cell lines.|

STIM1 Antibody: In T lymphocytes, the sole pathway for Ca2+ entry following antigen-receptor binding is through store-operated Ca2+-release-activated Ca2+ (CRAC) channels. These channels are made up of the pore-forming subunit ORAI1 and the stromal interaction molecule 1 (STIM1), a protein that functions as a Ca2+ sensor and activates the CRAC channels, migrating to the plasma membrane from endoplasmic reticulum (ER)-like sites which act as the Ca2+ store. A related molecule, STIM2, acts to inhibit the STIM1-mediated store-operated Ca2+ entry, and can form complexes with STIM1, suggesting they may play a coordinated role in controlling Ca2+ entry.
