Immunogen Recombinant protein corresponding to AA 1921 to 2222 from rat Ca2+ channel R-type α-1E (Cav2.3) (UniProt Id: Q07652)
Reactivity Reacts with: rat (Q07652), mouse (Q61290).
Other species not tested yet.

WB: Due to its large size, this antibody requires special gel-electrophoresis and Western blot protocols for visualization by immunoblotting. Excellent results can be obtained with the 4-12% TRIS-glycine gradient gels of anamed or NuPage TRIS-acetate gels from Invitrogen. Ca2+ channel R-type alpha-1E aggregates after boiling, making it necessary to run SDS-PAGE with non-boiled samples. ECL detection is recommended:

Voltage gated calcium channels (VGCCs), also referred to as voltage sensitive calcium channels (VSCCs), are present in most excitable cells. They mediate the influx of Ca2+ ions into the cell and trigger the release of neurotransmitters or hormons but are also involved in other calcium dependent processes like metabolism, cell proliferation and cell death.
VGCCs are composed of four subunits (α-1, α-2, β and δ) in a 1:1:1:1 ratio. The α-1E isoform occurs in VGCCs of the R-type which belongs to the high voltage activated group (hva).
