Western blot image of human autophosphorylated TRPM7 C-terminal kinase domain (lanes 1-6). The blot was treated with lambda phosphatase to dephosphorylate TRPM7 phosphosites (lanes 2, 4, & 6). The blot was probed with rabbit polyclonals anti-TRPM7 (Ser-1513) phospho-specific (lanes 1 & 2), anti-TRPM7 (a.a.1484-1497) TP5691 antibody (lanes 3 & 4), or anti-TRPM7 (Ser-1493) phospho-specific (lanes 5 & 6).

TRPM7 (cytoplasmic region)
The transient receptor potential melastatin (TRPM) subfamily of cation-permeable TRP channels is ubiquitously expressed in mammalian tissues. This family includes TRPM1-8. In addition to acting as a calcium-permeant channel, TRPM6 and TRPM7 possess an inherent serine/threonine kinase activity. TRPM7 specifically is involved with cellular magnesium homeostasis and neurotransmitter release. Due to the magnesium inhibition, TRPM7’s ion channel activity is very low. TRPM7 has been implicated in cell proliferation and migration during cancer progression, and its expression levels correlate with prognosis in breast cancer. TRPM7 kinase activation leads to massive autophosphorylation of the C-terminal region, including phosphorylation of Ser-1493, Ser-1513, and Ser-1569. Both Ser-1513 and Ser-1569 phosphorylation is required for kinase activity, and phosphorylation of Ser-1513 may inhibit Caspase-mediated cleavage of the C-terminal tail. Thus, TRPM7 is a multifunctional transmembrane protein with roles in cell signaling, proliferation, migration, and death.
Antigen Affinity Purified
TRPM7 synthetic peptide (coupled to carrier) corresponding to amino acids from the cytoplasmic region of human TRPM7. This site is not well conserved in rat and mouse TRPM7, and has no homology to other TRPM family members.
Storage at -20°C is recommended, as aliquots may be taken without freeze/thawing due to presence of 50% glycerol. Stable for at least 1 year at -20°C.
