The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 30 kDa. Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.
FunctionOne gap junction consists of a cluster of closely packed pairs of transmembrane channels, the connexons, through which materials of low MW diffuse from one cell to a neighboring cell.
Tissue specificityCNS specific. Expression is restricted to brain, spinal cord, and sciatic nerve. According to PubMed:12881038, expression is abundant in skeletal muscle, liver, and heart, and to a minor degree in pancreas and kidney.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the connexin family. Gamma-type subfamily.
Cellular localizationCell membrane. Cell junction > gap junction.
