|Other Names||Gap junction beta-3 protein, Connexin-31, Cx31, GJB3, CX31|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP1553a was selected from the N-term region of human GJB3. 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|

Gap junctions are conduits that allow the direct cell-to-cell passage of small cytoplasmic molecules, including ions, metabolic intermediates, and second messengers, and thereby mediate intercellular metabolic and electrical communication. Gap junction channels consist of connexin protein subunits, which are encoded by a multigene family. GJBs (gap-junction proteins or connexins) play crucial functional roles associated with these channels. Defects in GJB3 have been linked to erythrokeratodermia variabilis (EKV) is an autosomal dominant genodermatosis characterized by transient figurate red patches or hyperkeratosis. Mutations in GJB2 have also been associated with genetically derived hearing impairments, including autosomal recessive nonsyndromic deafness.
