A synthetic peptide from mouse TRPM4 conjugated to blue carrier protein was used as the antigen. The peptide is homologous in rat.
The location of the epitope is highlighted in
Transient receptor potential cation channel subfamily M member 4, Long transient receptor potential channel 4, Calcium-activated non-selective cation channel 1, Melastatin-like 2, MLS2s
FUNCTION: Calcium-activated non selective (CAN) cation channel that mediates membrane depolarization. While it is activated by increase in intracellular Ca(2+), it is impermeable to it. Mediates transport of monovalent cations (Na(+) > K(+) > Cs(+) > Li(+)), leading to depolarize the membrane. It thereby plays a central role in cadiomyocytes, neurons from entorhinal cortex, dorsal root and vomeronasal neurons, endocrine pancreas cells, kidney epithelial cells, cochlea hair cells etc. Participates in T-cell activation by modulating Ca(2+) oscillations after T lymphocyte activation, which is required for NFAT-dependent IL2 production. Involved in myogenic constriction of cerebral arteries. Controls insulin secretion in pancreatic beta-cells. May also be involved in pacemaking or could cause irregular electrical activity under conditions of Ca(2+) overload.
SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein.
Maintain the lyophilised/reconstituted antibodies frozen at -20░C for long term storage and refrigerated at 2-8░C for a shorter term. When reconstituting, glycerol (1:1) may be added for an additional stability. Avoid freeze and thaw cycles.
