Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab3468 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 at an assay dependent concentration.
WB 1/1000. Can be blocked with epithelial Sodium Channel gamma peptide (ab4990).
IP Use at an assay dependent concentration. This antibody specifically binds to the unglycosylated, ~75 kDa recombinant rat gamma ENaC protein.


  • Function
    Sodium permeable non-voltage-sensitive ion channel inhibited by the diuretic amiloride. Mediates the electrodiffusion of the luminal sodium (and water, which follows osmotically) through the apical membrane of epithelial cells. Controls the reabsorption of sodium in kidney, colon, lung and sweat glands. Also plays a role in taste perception.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in SCNN1G are a cause of Liddle syndrome (LIDDS) [MIM:177200]. It is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by pseudoaldosteronism and hypertension associated with hypokalemic alkalosis. The disease is caused by constitutive activation of the renal epithelial sodium channel.
    Defects in SCNN1G are the cause of bronchiectasis with or without elevated sweat chloride type 3 (BESC3) [MIM:613071]. A debilitating respiratory disease characterized by chronic, abnormal dilatation of the bronchi and other cystic fibrosis-like symptoms in the absence of known causes of bronchiectasis (cystic fibrosis, autoimmune diseases, ciliary dyskinesia, common variable immunodeficiency, foreign body obstruction). Clinical features include sub-normal lung function, sinopulmonary infections, chronic productive cough, excessive sputum production, and elevated sweat chloride in some cases.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the amiloride-sensitive sodium channel (TC 1.A.6) family. SCNN1G subfamily.
  • Post-translational
    Phosphorylated on serine and threonine residues.
    Ubiquitinated; this targets individual subunits for endocytosis and proteasome-mediated degradation.
  • Cellular localization
    Apical cell membrane. Apical membrane of epithelial cells.

  • ab3468 staining epithelial Sodium Channel gamma in Mouse kidney tissue sections by Immunohistochemistry (IHC-P - paraformaldehyde-fixed, paraffin-embedded sections). Tissue was fixed with formaldehyde and blocked with 10% Donkey serum for 2 hours at room temperature; antigen retrieval was by heat mediation in a citrate buffer. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/300 in KPBS-BT2) for 12 hours at 4°C. An undiluted HRP-conjugated Donkey anti-rabbit IgG polyclonal was used as the secondary antibody.

Vielen Dank für Ihre Anfrage.

Nein, es handelt sich um kein Missverständnis: Ich wollte mit den Wikipedia Eintragen nur verdeutlichen, dass es bei HEK293 Zellen nicht ganz klar ist, um welche Art von Zellen es sich handelt; bzw. ob...

Es kann gut sein, dass HEK293 Zellen dieses Protein bereits endogen expremieren. Wir selber haben dies allerdings nicht gemessen.

Es gibt allerdings Hinweise, dass dies tatsächlich der Fall sein könnte: Aus Wikipedia "For ...
