Gene Information

human ... CACNA2D1(781)


Voltage-dependent calcium channel subunit alpha-2/delta-1 precursor recombinant protein epitope signature tag (PrEST)



All Prestige Antibodies Powered by Atlas Antibodies are developed and validated by the Human Protein Atlas (HPA) project ( as a result, are supported by the most extensive characterization in the industry.

The Human Protein Atlas project can be subdivided into three efforts: Human Tissue Atlas, Cancer Atlas, and Human Cell Atlas. The antibodies that have been generated in support of the Tissue and Cancer Atlas projects have been tested by immunohistochemistry against hundreds of normal and disease tissues and through the recent efforts of the Human Cell Atlas project, many have been characterized by immunofluorescence to map the human proteome not only at the tissue level but now at the subcellular level. These images and the collection of this vast data set can be viewed on the Human Protein Atlas (HPA) site by clicking on the Image Gallery link.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Voltage-dependent calcium channel subunit α2/δ-1 (CACNA2D1) is involved in synaptogenesis and regulates the influx of calcium ions through the plasma membrane. Due to sensory nerve injury, there is up-regulation of CACNA2D1 in dorsal root ganglion (DRG) neurons and hence these subunits are immediately trafficked to their terminals.

Features and Benefits

Prestige Antibodies® are highly characterized and extensively validated antibodies with the added benefit of all available characterization data for each target being accessible via the Human Protein Atlas portal linked just below the product name at the top of this page. The uniqueness and low cross-reactivity of the Prestige Antibodies® to other proteins are due to a thorough selection of antigen regions, affinity purification, and stringent selection. Prestige antigen controls are available for every corresponding Prestige Antibody and can be found in the linkage section.

Every Prestige Antibody is tested in the following ways:
  • IHC tissue array of 44 normal human tissues and 20 of the most common cancer type tissues.
  • Protein array of 364 human recombinant protein fragments.


Corresponding Antigen APREST71590.

Physical form

Solution in phosphate-buffered saline, pH 7.2, containing 40% glycerol and 0.02% sodium azide

Tumour-initiating cells (TICs) are advocated to constitute the sustaining force to maintain and renew fully established malignancy; however, the molecular mechanisms responsible for these properties are elusive. We previously demonstrated that voltage-gated calcium channel α2δ1 subunit marks hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC)...

The identification and targeted therapy of cells involved in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) recurrence remain challenging. Here, we generated a monoclonal antibody against recurrent HCC, 1B50-1, that bound the isoform 5 of the α2δ1 subunit of voltage-gated calcium channels and identified...

Malignant hyperthermia susceptibility (MHS) is an autosomal dominant disorder of skeletal muscle which manifests as a potentially fatal hypermetabolic crisis triggered by commonly used anaesthetic agents. The demonstration of genetic heterogeneity in MHS prompted the investigation of the roles played...

The classical roles of α(2)δ proteins are as accessory calcium channel subunits, enhancing channel trafficking. They were thought to have type-I transmembrane topology, but we find that they can form GPI-anchored proteins. Moreover α(2)δ-1 and α(2)δ-3 have been shown to...

CACNA2 encodes the alpha(2)/delta subunit of the human voltage-gated calcium channels and is located in the candidate region of malignant hyperthermia susceptibility type 3 (MHS3). We determined the structural organization of CACNA2 by isolation of overlapping genomic DNA clones from...
