|Other Names||Kv channel-interacting protein 4, KChIP4, A-type potassium channel modulatory protein 4, Calsenilin-like protein, Potassium channel-interacting protein 4, KCNIP4, CALP, KCHIP4|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP1574a was selected from the N-term region of human KChIP4. 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||Regulatory subunit of Kv4/D (Shal)-type voltage-gated rapidly inactivating A-type potassium channels. Modulates KCND2 channel density, inactivation kinetics and rate of recovery from inactivation in a calcium-dependent and isoform-specific manner (PubMed:11847232, PubMed:18957440, PubMed:23576435). Modulates KCND3/Kv4.3 currents (PubMed:23576435). Isoform 4 does not increase KCND2 expression at the cell membrane (PubMed:18957440). Isoform 4 retains KCND3 in the endoplasmic reticulum and negatively regulates its expression at the cell membrane.|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Peripheral membrane protein Cytoplasm|
|Tissue Location||Predominantly expressed in brain.|

KChIP4 is a member of the family of voltage-gated potassium (Kv) channel-interacting proteins (KCNIPs), which belong to the recoverin branch of the EF-hand superfamily. Members of the KCNIP family are small calcium binding proteins. They all have EF-hand-like domains, and differ from each other in the N-terminus. They are integral subunit components of native Kv4 channel complexes. They may regulate A-type currents, and hence neuronal excitability, in response to changes in intracellular calcium. This protein member also interacts with presenilin.
