|Other Names||Junctophilin-3, JP-3, Junctophilin type 3, Jph3, Jp3|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP2715b was selected from the C-term region of human Junctophilin 3. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|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||Junctophilins contribute to the formation of junctional membrane complexes (JMCs) which link the plasma membrane with the endoplasmic or sarcoplasmic reticulum in excitable cells. Provides a structural foundation for functional cross-talk between the cell surface and intracellular calcium release channels. JPH3 is brain- specific and appears to have an active role in certain neurons involved in motor coordination and memory.|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Peripheral membrane protein. Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Single-pass type IV membrane protein. Note=Localized predominantly on the plasma membrane. The transmembrane domain is anchored in endoplasmic reticulum membrane, while the N-terminal part associates with the plasma membrane|
|Tissue Location||Specifically expressed in brain. Highest levels in the olfactory tubercle, caudate putamen, nucleus accumbens, hippocampal formation, piriform cortex and cerebellar cortex. Expressed in disctete neurons sites. In hippocampal formation, expressed in dendrites of hippocampal pyramidal and denate granule cells. In cerebellum, it is highly expressed in Purkinge cells, while it is weakly expressed in granular cells|

Junctional complexes between the plasma membrane and endoplasmic/sarcoplasmic reticulum are a common feature of all excitable cell types and mediate cross talk between cell surface and intracellular ion channels. Junctophilin 3 is a component of junctional complexes and is composed of a C-terminal hydrophobic segment spanning the endoplasmic/sarcoplasmic reticulum membrane and a remaining cytoplasmic domain that shows specific affinity for the plasma membrane.
