|Other Names||Gap junction delta-2 protein, Connexin-36, Cx36, Gap junction alpha-9 protein, GJD2, GJA9|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP1549a was selected from the N-term region of human GJA9. 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.|
|Function||One gap junction consists of a cluster of closely packed pairs of transmembrane channels, the connexons, through which materials of low MW diffuse from one cell to a neighboring cell.|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. Cell junction, gap junction|
|Tissue Location||Highly expressed in neurons.|

GJA9, also called connexin-36 (CX36), is a member of the connexin gene family that is expressed predominantly in mammalian neurons. Connexins associate in groups of 6 and are organized radially around a central pore to form connexons. Each gap junction intercellular channel is formed by the conjunction of 2 connexons.
