|Other Names||Stromal interaction molecule 1, STIM1, GOK|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. 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.|

This gene encodes a type 1 transmembrane protein thatmediates Ca2+ influx after depletion of intracellular Ca2+ storesby gating of store-operated Ca2+ influx channels (SOCs). It is oneof several genes located in the imprinted gene domain of 11p15.5,an important tumor-suppressor gene region. Alterations in thisregion have been associated with the Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome,Wilms tumor, rhabdomyosarcoma, adrenocrotical carcinoma, and lung,ovarian, and breast cancer. This gene may play a role inmalignancies and disease that involve this region, as well as earlyhematopoiesis, by mediating attachment to stromal cells. This geneis oriented in a head-to-tail configuration with the ribonucleotidereductase 1 gene (RRM1), with the 3' end of this gene situated 1.6kb from the 5' end of the RRM1 gene.
