|Application ||IHC-P, WB, E|
|Calculated MW||68585 Da|
|Antigen Region||563-592 aa|
|Other Names||P2X purinoceptor 7, P2X7, ATP receptor, P2Z receptor, Purinergic receptor, P2RX7|
|Target/Specificity||This P2RX7 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 563-592 amino acids of human P2RX7.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is purified through a protein A column, followed by peptide affinity purification.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||P2RX7 Antibody (C-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Receptor for ATP that acts as a ligand-gated ion channel. Responsible for ATP-dependent lysis of macrophages through the formation of membrane pores permeable to large molecules. Could function in both fast synaptic transmission and the ATP-mediated lysis of antigen-presenting cells. In the absence of its natural ligand, ATP, functions as a scavenger receptor in the recognition and engulfment of apoptotic cells (PubMed:21821797, PubMed:23303206).|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Multi- pass membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Widely expressed with highest levels in brain and immune tissues.|
Provided below are standard protocols that you may find useful for product applications.
P2RX7 belongs to the family of purinoceptors for ATP. This receptor functions as a ligand-gated ion channel and is responsible for ATP-dependent lysis of macrophages through the formation of membrane pores permeable to large molecules. Activation of this nuclear receptor by ATP in the cytoplasm may be a mechanism by which cellular activity can be coupled to changes in gene expression.
