Antigen/Purification: ExpandCollapse

The antigen is a peptide from the subunit region of the voltage gated potassium channel, Kv2.2 of rat and Xenopus, conjugated to keyhole limpet hemocyanin (KLH).

The antibody is prepared from pooled rabbit serum by affinity purification using a Sulfo-Link® column matrix to which the peptide immunogen was coupled.

Biological Significance: ExpandCollapse

Voltage-gated K+ channels are important determinants of neuronal membrane excitability (Pongs, 1999). Moreover, differences in K+ channel expression patterns and densities contribute to the variations in action potential waveforms and repetitive firing patterns evident in different neuronal cell types. The delayed rectifier-type (IK)channels (Kv1.5, Kv2.1, and Kv2.2) are expressed on all neuronal somata and proximal dendrites and are also found in a wide variety of non-neuronal cells types including pancreatic islets, alveolar cells and cardiac myocytes (Hwang et al., 1993; Yan et al., 2004; Michaelevski et al., 2003). Kv2.1 and Kv2.2 form distinct populations of K+ channels and these subunits are thought to be primarily responsible for IK in superior cervical ganglion cells (Blaine and Ribera, 1998; Burger and Ribera, 1996).
