Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab48551 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 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 50 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 39 kDa). Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.
IHC-P Use at an assay dependent concentration.


  • Relevance
    Voltage gated potassium (Kv) channels represent the most complex class of voltage gated ion channels from both functional and structural standpoints. Their diverse functions include regulating neurotransmitter release, heart rate, insulin secretion, neuronal excitability, epithelial electrolyte transport, smooth muscle contraction, and cell volume. Four sequence related potassium channel genes: shaker, shaw, shab, and shal, have been identified in Drosophila, and each has been shown to have human homolog(s). This protein belongs to the potassium channel, voltage gated, shaker related subfamily and is one of the beta subunits, which are auxiliary proteins associating with functional Kv alpha subunits. This member alters functional properties of the KCNA4 gene product. Alternative splicing of this gene results in two transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms.

    Predicted band size : 39 kDa
    Observed band size : 50 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
    Additional bands at : 33 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.
