  • Description
    Rat monoclonal [270] to Nicotinic Acetylcholine Receptor beta 2
  • Tested applicationsSuitable for: IP, WB, ICC/IFmore details
  • Species reactivity
    Reacts with: Mouse, Rat, Chicken
  • Immunogen

    Purified neuronal Nicotinic Acetylcholine Receptors from chicken brain.

  • EpitopeThis clone binds to the extracellular surface of neuronal Acetylcholine Receptor beta 2-subunits.
  • General notes

    This antibody binds to native subunits as well as denatured subunits although with lower affinity. Clone 270 is useful for immunoisolating and pharmacologically characterizing AChRs, immunopurification of AChRs, and is also useful histologically.



Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab24698 in the following tested applications.

  • FunctionAfter binding acetylcholine, the AChR responds by an extensive change in conformation that affects all subunits and leads to opening of an ion-conducting channel across the plasma membrane.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in CHRNB2 are the cause of nocturnal frontal lobe epilepsy type 3 (ENFL3) [MIM:605375]. ENFL3 is an autosomal dominant epilepsy characterized by nocturnal seizures with hyperkinetic automatisms and poorly organized stereotyped movements.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the ligand-gated ion channel (TC 1.A.9) family. Acetylcholine receptor (TC 1.A.9.1) subfamily. Beta-2/CHRNB2 sub-subfamily.
  • Cellular localizationCell junction > synapse > postsynaptic cell membrane. Cell membrane.
