Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab62461 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 a concentration of 10 µg/ml.
ICC/IF Use at an assay dependent concentration.
WB Use a concentration of 0.5 - 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 106 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 106 kDa).


  • Function

    Thought to form a receptor-activated non-selective calcium permeant cation channel. Probably is operated by a phosphatidylinositol second messenger system activated by receptor tyrosine kinases or G-protein coupled receptors. Activated by diacylglycerol (DAG) in a membrane-delimited fashion, independently of protein kinase C. Seems not to be activated by intracellular calcium store depletion.
  • Tissue specificity

    Expressed primarily in placenta, lung, spleen, ovary and small intestine. Expressed in podocytes and is a component of the glomerular slit diaphragm.
  • Involvement in disease

    Defects in TRPC6 are the cause of focal segmental glomerulosclerosis type 2 (FSGS2) [MIM:603965]. A renal pathology defined by the presence of segmental sclerosis in glomeruli and resulting in proteinuria, reduced glomerular filtration rate and edema. Renal insufficiency often progresses to end-stage renal disease, a highly morbid state requiring either dialysis therapy or kidney transplantation.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the transient receptor (TC 1.A.4) family. STrpC subfamily. TRPC6 sub-subfamily.
    Contains 4 ANK repeats.

I was not able to obtain the exact sequence of the immunogen, as it is considered proprietary by our source for this antibody. I did learn that the immunogen shares 92% identity with rat TRPC6. There are 13 contiguous identical amino acids out of 14.

However, the lab also reported that a western blot of rat heart was negative. This is a little surprising, given the high homology, but it was one test, and the result may have been unique to the batch that was tested.

Thank you for contacting us. After consulting with the laboratory regarding ab62461, I have discovered that though the rat and mouse sequence are quite similar, they did test in rat and did not receive a positive signal.

I hope this information is helpful to you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.

Thank you very much for your interest in our anti-TRPC6 antibodies.

While we do offer six products which work in human tissues, to our knowledge, none of these products have been tested in FACS on human cells. Therefore, I can offer a discount off a future purchase if you buy one of these now, test it in FACS and submit feedback to us in the form of an Abreview. It doesn’t matter whether the Abreview is positive or negative, we would just really like to receive your feedback. The discount would be to the value of: 1 free PRIMARY ANTIBODY OR VALUE OFF OF NEXT ORDER.
