TASK1 Potassium Channel Monoclonal Antibody
Catalog no.: 11578 (clone S374-48)
Format: 100ug (1mg/ml) Protein G-purified antibody in PBS, pH 7.4, 0.1% sodium azide, 50% glycerol.
TASK1 channels are members of the two-pore domain family of potassium channels whose structure consists of two pore-forming regions flanked by four membrane-spanning domains. The activity of these channels is sensitive to changes in extracellular pH in the physiological range. Like other two-pore domain family members, these channels show little time or voltage dependence. Thus they have characteristics of leak K+ channels, generating background currents that contribute to membrane potential and the shaping of cell excitability.
Antigen: Fusion protein corresponding to aa 251-411 (cytoplasmic C-terminus) of rat TASK1. This sequence is 96% identical in mouse, 76% identical in human, and <30% identical in TASK3. Accession nos: NP_203694.1, O54912 Gene ID: 29553 Host Species: Mouse Antibody Class: IgG2b Specificity: This antibody recognizes human, mouse, and rat TASK1.
Immunoblotting: use at 1-5ug/ml. A band of ~50kDa is detected.
Immunofluorescence: use at 10ug/ml.
These are recommended concentrations. Endusers should determine optimal concentrations for their application.
Dilute in PBS or medium that is identical to that used in the assay system.
