PA5-29274 targets P2X7 in IHC (P) and WB applications and shows reactivity with Human samples.
The PA5-29274 immunogen is recombinant protein fragment corresponding to a region within amino acids 29 and 263 of Human P2X7.
The product of this gene belongs to the family of purinoceptors for ATP. This receptor functions as a ligand-gated ion channel and is responsible for ATP-dependent lysis of macrophages through the formation of membrane pores permeable to large molecules. Activation of this nuclear receptor by ATP in the cytoplasm may be a mechanism by which cellular activity can be coupled to changes in gene expression. Multiple alternatively spliced variants which would encode different isoforms have been identified although some fit nonsense-mediated decay (NMD) criteria.
