Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab4991 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
This peptide may be used for neutralization and control experiments with the polyclonal antibody that reacts with this product and human KChIP 2, catalog ab3473. Using a solution of peptide of equal volume and concentration to the corresponding antibody will yield a large molar excess of peptide (~ 70-fold) for competitive inhibition of antibody-protein binding reactions.

- A type potassium channel modulatory protein 2
- A-type potassium channel modulatory protein 2
- Cardiac voltage gated potassium channel modulatory subunit
FunctionRegulatory subunit of Kv4/D (Shal)-type voltage-gated rapidly inactivating A-type potassium channels. Modulates channel density, inactivation kinetics and rate of recovery from inactivation in a calcium-dependent and isoform-specific manner. In vitro, modulates KCND2/Kv4.2 and KCND3/Kv4.3 currents. Involved in KCND2 and KCND3 trafficking to the cell surface. May be required for the expression of I(To) currents in the heart.
Tissue specificityExpressed in brain. Colocalizes with KCND2 in excitatory neurons including cortical and hippocampal CA1 pyramidal cells. Isoform 3 is expressed in heart and in umbilical vein endothelial cells. Not expressed in fetal heart.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the recoverin family.
Contains 4 EF-hand domains.
modificationsPalmitoylated. Palmitoylation enhances association with the plasma membrane.
Cellular localizationCell membrane and Cell membrane. Detected on lipid rafts (By similarity).
