This antibody is specific for the ~125 kDa Kv 2.
Voltage-gated K+ channels are important determinants of neuronal membrane excitability (Pong , 1999). Moreover, differences in K+ channel expression patterns and densities contribute to the variation 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 on non-neuronal cell types including pancreatic islet , 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).
