Please refer to the product datasheet for known applications of a given positive control. We\'ve tested the Aquaporin 4 Antibody Positive Control with the following immunoassay(s):
Western Blot (WB)
Forms water specific channel. Osmoreceptor which regulates water balance and mediates water flow within CNS.
Immunogen: Purified Protein
Expression: Abundant in mature brain but only weakly detectable in eye, kidney, intestine, and lung. Molecular Function: Transport
Structure: Aquaporins contain two tandem repeats each containing three membrane-spanning domains and a pore-forming loop with the signature motif Asn-Pro-Ala (NPA).
