|Other Names||Secretagogin, SCGN, SECRET|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP1458a was selected from the N-term region of human SCGN. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Format||The synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml deionized 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.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Secreted. Cytoplasmic vesicle, secretory vesicle membrane; Peripheral membrane protein; Cytoplasmic side. Note=Predominantly cytoplasmic. A small proportion is associated with secretory granules and membrane fractions (By similarity). Detectable in human serum after ischemic neuronal damage.|
|Tissue Location||Expressed at high levels in the pancreatic islets of Langerhans and to a much lesser extent in the gastrointestinal tract (stomach, small intestine and colon), the adrenal medulla and cortex and the thyroid C-cells. In the brain, the expression is restricted to distinct subtypes of neurons with highest expression in the molecular layer of the cerebellum (stellate and basket cells), in the anterior part of the pituitary gland, in the thalamus, in the hypothalamus and in a subgroup of neocortical neurons.|

SCGN is a secreted calcium-binding protein which is found in the cytoplasm. It is related to calbindin D-28K and calretinin. SCGN is thought to be involved in KCL-stimulated calcium flux and cell proliferation.
