FunctionMediates the voltage-dependent potassium ion permeability of excitable membranes. Channels open or close in response to the voltage difference across the membrane, letting potassium ions pass in accordance with their electrochemical gradient.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the potassium channel family. B (Shab) (TC 1.A.1.2) subfamily. Kv2.1/KCNB1 sub-subfamily.
DomainThe segment S4 is probably the voltage-sensor and is characterized by a series of positively charged amino acids at every third position.
The tail may be important in modulation of channel activity and/or targeting of the channel to specific subcellular compartments.
modificationsHighly phosphorylated on serine residues in the C-terminal. Differential phosphorylation on a subset of serines allows graded activity-dependent regulation of channel gating. Phosphorylation on Ser-457, Ser-541, Ser-567, Ser-607, Ser-656 and Ser-720 as well as the N-terminal Ser-15 are all regulated by calcineurin-mediated dephosphorylation. Particularly, Ser-607 and Tyr-128 are significant sites of voltage-gated regulation through phosphorylation/ dephosphorylation activities. Tyr-128 can be dephosphorylated by PTPalpha and cyt-PTPepsilon. Phosphorylation levels on Ser-607 are supersensitive to neuronal activity. Phosphorylation on Ser-567 is reduced during postnatal development with low levels at P2 and P5. Levels then increase to reach adult levels by P14. Phosphorylation levels on Ser-564 and Ser-607 are greatly reduced during seizures, by 40% and 85% respectively.

IHC image of Kv2.1/KCNB1 staining in Human Normal Hippocampus formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue section*, performed on a Leica Bond™ system using the standard protocol F. The section was pre-treated using heat mediated antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH6, epitope retrieval solution 1) for 20 mins. The section was then incubated with ab192761, 1µg/ml, for 15 mins at room temperature and detected using an HRP conjugated compact polymer system. DAB was used as the chromogen. The section was then counterstained with haematoxylin and mounted with DPX.
For other IHC staining systems (automated and non-automated) customers should optimize variable parameters such as antigen retrieval conditions, primary antibody concentration and antibody incubation times.
