Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab62461 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 10 µg/ml.
ICC/IF Use at an assay dependent concentration.
WB Use a concentration of 0.5 - 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 106 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 106 kDa).Can be blocked with TRPC6 peptide (ab106953).


  • FunctionThought to form a receptor-activated non-selective calcium permeant cation channel. Probably is operated by a phosphatidylinositol second messenger system activated by receptor tyrosine kinases or G-protein coupled receptors. Activated by diacylglycerol (DAG) in a membrane-delimited fashion, independently of protein kinase C. Seems not to be activated by intracellular calcium store depletion.
  • Tissue specificityExpressed primarily in placenta, lung, spleen, ovary and small intestine. Expressed in podocytes and is a component of the glomerular slit diaphragm.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in TRPC6 are the cause of focal segmental glomerulosclerosis type 2 (FSGS2) [MIM:603965]. A renal pathology defined by the presence of segmental sclerosis in glomeruli and resulting in proteinuria, reduced glomerular filtration rate and edema. Renal insufficiency often progresses to end-stage renal disease, a highly morbid state requiring either dialysis therapy or kidney transplantation.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the transient receptor (TC 1.A.4) family. STrpC subfamily. TRPC6 sub-subfamily.
    Contains 4 ANK repeats.
