REACTIVITY SENSITIVITY MW (kDa) Isotype
15 Rabbit 

Product Usage Information

Storage: Supplied in 10 mM sodium HEPES (pH 7.5), 150 mM NaCl, 100 µg/ml BSA, 50% glycerol and less than 0.02% sodium azide. Store at –20°C. Do not aliquot the antibody.

Specificity / Sensitivity

KCNE1 (D2D5) Rabbit mAb recognizes endogenous levels of total KCNE1 protein.


Source / Purification

Monoclonal antibody is produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Asn75 of human KCNE1 protein.

Voltage-gated potassium channels play a variety of important roles in human health and disease (1,2). KCNE1, also known as MinK, belongs to a family of small transmembrane proteins (KCNE1, 2, 3, 4, and KCNE1L) that modulate the activity of several voltage-gated K+ channels (3-5). KCNE1 functions as the modulatory β-subunit of the pore-forming α-subunit KCNQ1, and alters several biophysical properties of KCNQ1 channels (6,7). Research studies have shown that several inherited mutations in KCNE1 result in long QT syndrome (8-10) and deafness (11).
