  • Target

    • Function
      This protein mediates the voltage-dependent sodium ion permeability of excitable membranes. Assuming opened or closed conformations in response to the voltage difference across the membrane, the protein forms a sodium-selective channel through which sodium ions may pass in accordance with their electrochemical gradient. It is a tetrodotoxin-resistant sodium channel isoform. Also involved, with the contribution of the receptor tyrosine kinase NTRK2, in rapid BDNF-evoked neuronal depolarization.
    • Tissue specificity
      Expressed in the dorsal root ganglia and trigeminal ganglia, olfactory bulb, hippocampus, cerebellar cortex, spinal cord, spleen, small intestine and placenta.
    • Involvement in disease
      Neuropathy, hereditary sensory and autonomic, 7
      Episodic pain syndrome, familial, 3
    • Sequence similarities
      Belongs to the sodium channel (TC 1.A.1.10) family. Nav1.9/SCN11A subfamily.
    • Domain
      The sequence contains 4 internal repeats, each with 5 hydrophobic segments (S1,S2,S3,S5,S6) and one positively charged segment (S4). Segments S4 are probably the voltage-sensors and are characterized by a series of positively charged amino acids at every third position.
    • Post-translational
      Phosphorylation at Ser-1341 by PKC in a highly conserved cytoplasmic loop slows inactivation of the sodium channel and reduces peak sodium currents.

    • ab65160 staining SCN11A in human sperm cells by Immunocytochemistry/ Immunofluorescence.
      Sperm cells were washed, re-suspended in phosphate-buffered saline and smeared onto poly-L-lysine-coated slides. Spermatozoa were then fixed by incubation in cold methanol (-20°C) for 20 minutes. Slides were washed three times for 10 minutes with PBS and incubated with 2% BSA in PBS for 30 minutes to block non-specific sites. Test slides were incubated with ab65160 at a 1/100 dilution. Samples were washed three times in PBS, and incubated for 60 minutes with appropriate FITC-conjugated secondary antibodies. Slides were further washed in PBS, mounted using Vectashield and examined with a Olympus BX-51 fluorescence microscopy using a 100× immersion objective.
