ab171870 - Rabbit polyclonal IgG, is suitable for use as an isotype control with this antibody.
1/50 - 1/100.
Cation channel with high affinity for sodium, which is gated by extracellular protons and inhibited by the diuretic amiloride. Also permeable for Ca(2+), Li(+) and K(+). Generates a biphasic current with a fast inactivating and a slow sustained phase. Mediates glutamate-independent Ca(2+) entry into neurons upon acidosis. This Ca(2+) overloading is toxic for cortical neurons and may be in part responsible for ischemic brain injury. Heteromeric channel assembly seems to modulate channel properties. Functions as a postsynaptic proton receptor that influences intracellular Ca(2+) concentration and calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II phosphorylation and thereby the density of dendritic spines. Modulates activity in the circuits underlying innate fear.
Expressed in most or all neurons.
Belongs to the amiloride-sensitive sodium channel (TC 1.A.6) family. ACCN2 subfamily.
Phosphorylation by PKA regulates interaction with PRKCABP and subcellular location. Phosphorylation by PKC may regulate the channel.
Cell membrane. Localizes in synaptosomes at dendritic synapses of neurons. Colocalizes with DLG4.
Immunohistochemical analysis of formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded Human brain tissue labeling ACCN2 with ab176203 at 1/50 dilution, followed by peroxidase-conjugation to the secondary antibody and DAB staining.
Flow cytometric analysis of CEM cells labeling ACCN2 with ab176203 at 1/10 dilution (bottom histogram), compared to a negative control cell (top histogram). FITC-conjugated Goat-anti-Rabbit secondary antibodies were used for the analysis.
