Technical Data
Slo1 (BKCa, BKCA alpha, BK channel, BK channel alpha subunit, Kcnma1, Potassium Large Conductance Calcium-Activated Channel, subfamily M, alpha member 1)
Slo1 (Calcium-activated potassium channel subunit alpha-1) may not only be activated by membrane depolarization but may also be by an increase in cytosolic Ca2+. The concentration of cytosolic Mg2+ also activates this potassium channel. Found to play a part in the repolarization of the membrane potential due to the fact that it diminishes the excitatory voltage in the cell.

Suitable for use in Western Blot, Immunohistochemistry and Immunocytochemistry. Other applications have not been tested.

Recommended Dilutions:
Western Blot: 1ug/ml detects Slo1 on 10ug of rat brain membrane tissue lysate.
Immunohistochemistry: 1:500 detects Slo1 in rat cerebellum tissue.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Positive Control:
Rat brain membrane tissue lysate
