Application Abreviews Notes
  • Application notes
    Peptide ELISA: Use at an assay dependent dilution. Antibody detection limit dilution 1/64,000.
    WB: Use at a concentration of 1 - 3 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 70 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 70 kDa).
    An additional band of unknown identity was also consistently observed at 22kDa. This band was successfully blocked by incubation with the immunising peptide.

    Not yet tested in other applications.
    Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
  • Target

    • Function
      After binding acetylcholine, the AChR responds by an extensive change in conformation that affects all subunits and leads to opening of an ion-conducting channel across the plasma membrane.
    • Involvement in disease
      Defects in CHRNA4 are the cause of nocturnal frontal lobe epilepsy type 1 (ENFL1) [MIM:600513]; also symbolized ADNFLE. ENFL1 is an autosomal dominant epilepsy characterized by nocturnal seizures with hyperkinetic automatisms and poorly organized stereotyped movements.
    • Sequence similarities
      Belongs to the ligand-gated ion channel (TC 1.A.9) family. Acetylcholine receptor (TC 1.A.9.1) subfamily. Alpha-4/CHRNA4 sub-subfamily.
    • Cellular localization
      Cell junction > synapse > postsynaptic cell membrane. Cell membrane.
