Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab48864 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 0.6 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 40 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 40 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.
ELISA Use at an assay dependent concentration.


  • FunctionIon channel gated by extracellular ATP involved in a variety of cellular responses, such as excitatory postsynaptic responses in sensory neurons, neuromuscular junctions (NMJ) formation, hearing, perception of taste and peristalsis. In the inner ear, regulates sound transduction and auditory neurotransmission, outer hair cell electromotility, inner ear gap junctions, and K(+) recycling. Mediates synaptic transmission between neurons and from neurons to smooth muscle.
  • Involvement in diseaseDeafness, autosomal dominant, 41
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the P2X receptor family.
  • Cellular localizationCell membrane. Localizes to the apical membranes of hair cells in the organ of Corti.
