MA3-940 detects mu-calpain from human platelets and erythrocytes, bovine platelets, heart and skeletal muscle, rat myoblasts, kidney, liver and spleen, mouse lung, pig cultured cells and hamster and rabbit samples. This antibody does not cross-react with m-calpain, n-calpain, calmodulin or calpastatin.
MA3-940 has been successfully used in Western blot, immunofluorescence, immunohistochemistry, and immunocytochemistry procedures. By Western blot, this antibody detects an 80 kDa protein representing mu-calpain from human platelets and erythrocytes and HeLa and A431 cell lysates. Immunocytochemical staining of mu-calpain in LLC-PK1 cells with MA3-940 results in diffuse cytoplasmic staining. This product has not been shown to be effective in immunoprecipitation experiments.
The MA3-940 antigen is purified bovine skeletal muscle 80 kDa mu-calpain subunit. This antibody recognizes an epitope between amino acids 465-520 (domain III) of human mu-calpain.
The calpains including Calpain 1 (CAPN1), calcium-activated neutral proteases, are nonlysosomal, intracellular cysteine proteases. The mammalian calpains include ubiquitous, stomach-specific, and muscle-specific proteins. The ubiquitous enzymes consist of heterodimers with distinct large, catalytic subunits associated with a common small, regulatory subunit. This gene encodes the large subunit of the ubiquitous enzyme, calpain 1. Several transcript variants encoding two different isoforms have been found for this gene. Diseases associated with CAPN1 include Spastic Paraplegia 76, Autosomal Recessive and Spasticity.
