Properties

Applications

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab28885 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
WB Use a concentration of 0.5 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 40 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 45 - 56 kDa). Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.

Target

  • Relevance
    The nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs) are members of a superfamily of ligand-gated ion channels that mediate fast signal transmission at synapses. CHRFAM7A is encoded by a hybrid gene consisting of a duplication of exons 5 through 10 of the CHRNA7 gene fused 3-prime to a copy of the FAM7A gene (exons A through E). Alternative splicing has been observed, and two variants exist, for this hybrid gene. The N-terminally truncated products predicted by the largest open reading frames for each variant would lack the majority of the neurotransmitter-gated ion-channel ligand binding domain but retain the transmembrane region that forms the ion channel.
