  • Application notes
    Is unsuitable for IP.
  • Target

    • Function
      Functions both as a transporter that mediates electroneutral anion exchange across the cell membrane and as a structural protein. Major integral membrane glycoprotein of the erythrocyte membrane; required for normal flexibility and stability of the erythrocyte membrane and for normal erythrocyte shape via the interactions of its cytoplasmic domain with cytoskeletal proteins, glycolytic enzymes, and hemoglobin. Functions as a transporter that mediates the 1:1 exchange of inorganic anions across the erythrocyte membrane. Mediates chloride-bicarbonate exchange in the kidney, and is required for normal acidification of the urine.
    • Tissue specificity
      Detected in erythrocytes (at protein level) (PubMed:7506871, PubMed:26542571). Isoform 2 is expressed in kidney (at protein level) (PubMed:7506871).
    • Involvement in disease
      Ovalocytosis, Southeast Asian
      Spherocytosis 4
      Renal tubular acidosis, distal, autosomal dominant
      Renal tubular acidosis, distal, with hemolytic anemia
      Renal tubular acidosis, distal, with normal red cell morphology
    • Sequence similarities
      Belongs to the anion exchanger (TC 2.A.31) family.
    • Post-translational
      Phosphorylated on Tyr-8 and Tyr-21 most likely by SYK. PP1-resistant phosphorylation that precedes Tyr-359 and Tyr-904 phosphorylation.
      Phosphorylated on Tyr-359 and Tyr-904 most likely by LYN. PP1-inhibited phosphorylation that follows Tyr-8 and Tyr-21 phosphorylation.
    • Cellular localization
      Cell membrane. Basolateral cell membrane. Detected in the erythrocyte cell membrane and on the basolateral membrane of alpha-intercalated cells in the collecting duct in the kidney.

    Thank you for accepting my offer.

    Unfortunately you would need the discount code before the purchase. Could you tell me which antibody you would like to buy?

    Thank you for contacting us.

    The macaca Band 3 protein is about 94% homologous to the human protein. It seems that the anti human Band 3 antibodies will cross react with Macaca proteins also.

    You can choose any of the anti Band 3 a...

    The peptide immunogen maps between amino acids 35 and 65 of human Band3 (UniProt: P02730). It is closer to the N-term.

    There is a possibility that ab104998 immunogen might be extracellular but I am wai...
