Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab46797 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
WB 1/1000. Detects a band of approximately 80 kDa.
IHC-P Use at an assay dependent concentration. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with citrate buffer pH 6 before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
Flow Cyt 1/30.

ab172730 - Rabbit monoclonal IgG, is suitable for use as an isotype control with this antibody.

  • Application notes
    Is unsuitable for ICC or IP.
  • Target

    • Function

      Pore-forming (alpha) subunit of voltage-gated rapidly inactivating A-type potassium channels. May contribute to I(To) current in heart and I(Sa) current in neurons. Channel properties are modulated by interactions with other alpha subunits and with regulatory subunits.
    • Tissue specificity

      Highly expressed throughout the brain. Expression is very low or absent in other tissues.
    • Sequence similarities

      Belongs to the potassium channel family. D (Shal) (TC 1.A.1.2) subfamily. Kv4.2/KCND2 sub-subfamily.
    • Domain

      The segment S4 is probably the voltage-sensor and is characterized by a series of positively charged amino acids at every third position.
    • Post-translational

      Phosphorylated on serine and threonine residues.
    • Cellular localization

      Cell membrane. Cell projection > dendrite. Detected in dendrites in cultured hippocampal neurons. Association with KCNIP2 probably enhances cell surface expression.

      Observed band size: 80 kDa
      why is the actual band size different from the predicted?
      Additional bands at: 25 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.
