Technical Data
CACNA2D1 (Voltage-dependent Calcium Channel Subunit alpha-2/delta-1, Voltage-gated Calcium Channel Subunit alpha-2/delta-1, Voltage-dependent Calcium Channel Subunit alpha-2-1, Voltage-dependent Calcium Channel Subunit delta-1, MHS3, CCHL2A, CACNL2A)
CACNA2D1 is a member of the alpha-2/delta subunit family, a protein in the voltage-dependent calcium channel complex. Calcium channels mediate the influx of calcium ions into the cell upon membrane polarization and consist of a complex of alpha-1, alpha-2/delta, beta, and gamma subunits in a 1:1:1:1 ratio. Research on a highly similar protein in rabbit suggests the protein described in this record is cleaved into alpha-2 and delta subunits.

Suitable for use in ELISA and Western Blot. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
ELISA: 1:16,000
Western Blot: 0.03-0.1ug/ml, observed in human brain (cerebellum) lysates on ~140kD bands
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap.
