Applications

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab93354 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

IHC-P Use a concentration of 3 - 6 µg/ml.

Target

  • FunctionReceptor for ATP that acts as a ligand-gated ion channel. Responsible for ATP-dependent lysis of macrophages through the formation of membrane pores permeable to large molecules. Could function in both fast synaptic transmission and the ATP-mediated lysis of antigen-presenting cells.
  • Tissue specificityWidely expressed with highest levels in brain and immune tissues.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the P2X receptor family.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Phosphorylation results in its inactivation.
    ADP-ribosylation at Arg-125 is necessary and sufficient to activate P2RX7 and gate the channel.
    Palmitoylation of several cysteines in the C-terminal cytoplasmic tail is required for efficient localization to cell surface.
  • Cellular localizationCell membrane.
