Description

Immunogen

synthetic peptide corresponding to amino acids 1506-1524 of the α1S subunit of rat skeletal muscle voltage-gated calcium channel (VGCC, CP15) (Accession P22002) with additional N-terminal cysteine, conjugated to MBS-KLH.

Physical form

Lyophilized from phosphate buffered saline, pH 7.4, containing 1% bovine serum albumin, 5% sucrose and 0.025% sodium azide.

Specificity

The epitope recognized by this antibody is masked by α2 and δ chains; therefore, the antibody binds only after subunit dissociation using Triton X-100 or other detergents.

Application

Anti-Calcium Channel (α1 Subunit), Pan antibody produced in rabbit is suitable for immunohistochemistry (using rat heart sections) and western blotting at a dilution of 1:200 using rat brain membranes.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Calcium channel, voltage-dependent, L type, α1C subunit (Cav1.2) is a protein encoded by the CACNA1C gene in humans and belongs to the family of voltage-gated calcium channels. It serves as the key transducers of cell surface membrane potential changes into local intracellular calcium transients that initiate different physiological events. CACNA1C is a subunit of L-type voltage-dependent calcium channel. It is mapped to chromosome 12p13.3 and is implicated as a susceptibility gene for schizophrenia. CACNA1C is selectively expressed in human TH2 cells and blockage of Cav1.2 channel activation in TH2 cells may represent new strategies to treat allergic diseases in human subjects. Its increased activity is implicated in the pathogenesis of dementia and Alzheimer′s disease (AD).
