|Other Names||Calcium-binding protein 1, CaBP1, Calbrain, Caldendrin, CABP1|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP7588b was selected from the C-term region of human CABP1. 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||Modulates calcium-dependent activity of inositol 1,4,5- triphosphate receptors (ITPRs). Inhibits agonist-induced intracellular calcium signaling. Enhances inactivation and does not support calcium-dependent facilitation of voltage-dependent P/Q-type calcium channels. Causes calcium-dependent facilitation and inhibits inactivation of L-type calcium channels by binding to the same sites as calmodulin in the C-terminal domain of CACNA1C, but resulting in an opposit effects on channel function. Suppresses the calcium-dependent inactivation of CACNA1D (By similarity). Inhibits TRPC5 channels. Prevents NMDA receptor- induced cellular degeneration (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton. Cytoplasm, perinuclear region. Cell membrane; Lipid-anchor; Cytoplasmic side Golgi apparatus. Cell junction, synapse, postsynaptic cell membrane, postsynaptic density. Note=L-CaBP1 is associated most likely with the cytoskeletal structures, whereas S-CaBP1 is localized at or near the plasma membrane Isoform S-CaBP1: Cytoplasm, cell cortex. Cell membrane; Lipid-anchor. Note=S-CaBP1 is localized at or near the plasma membrane|
|Tissue Location||Retina and brain. Somatodendritic compartment of neurons. Calbrain was found exclusively in brain where it is abundant in the hippocampus, habenular area in the epithalamus and in the cerebellum|

CABP1 belongs to a subfamily of calcium binding proteins, which share similarity to calmodulin. Calcium binding proteins are an important component of calcium mediated cellular signal transduction. Expression of this protein was only detected in retina and brain. Study of the mouse homolog demonstrated that groups of cells expressing this protein are located in the center or inner border of the inner unclear layer of retina.
