|Other Names||Neuronal calcium sensor 1, NCS-1, Frequenin homolog, Frequenin-like protein, Frequenin-like ubiquitous protein, NCS1, FLUP, FREQ|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP1551c was selected from the Center region of human NCS1 . 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||Neuronal calcium sensor, regulator of G protein-coupled receptor phosphorylation in a calcium dependent manner. Directly regulates GRK1 (RHOK), but not GRK2 to GRK5. Can substitute for calmodulin (By similarity). Stimulates PI4KB kinase activity (By similarity). Involved in long-term synaptic plasticity through its interaction with PICK1 (By similarity). May also play a role in neuron differentiation through inhibition of the activity of N- type voltage-gated calcium channel (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Golgi apparatus, Golgi stack membrane; Peripheral membrane protein. Cell junction, synapse, postsynaptic cell membrane, postsynaptic density. Cytoplasm, perinuclear region. Cell membrane; Peripheral membrane protein Note=Associated with Golgi stacks. Post-synaptic densities of dendrites, and in the pre-synaptic nerve terminal at neuromuscular junctions|

NCS1 is a member of the neuronal calcium sensor gene family, which encode calcium-binding proteins expressed predominantly in neurons. NCS1 regulates G protein-coupled receptor phosphorylation in a calcium-dependent manner and can substitute for calmodulin. This protein is thought to be associated with secretory granules and may be involved in the regulation of neurosecretion.
