|Protein Name||Potassium voltage-gated channel subfamily KQT member 2|
|Molecular Weight||95848 MW|
|Protein Function||Probably important in the regulation of neuronal excitability. Associates with KCNQ3 to form a potassium channel with essentially identical properties to the channel underlying the native M-current, a slowly activating and deactivating potassium conductance which plays a critical role in determining the subthreshold electrical excitability of neurons as well as the responsiveness to synaptic inputs. KCNQ2/KCNQ3 current is blocked by linopirdine and XE991, and activated by the anticonvulsant retigabine. Muscarinic agonist oxotremorine-M strongly suppress KCNQ2/KCNQ3 current in cells in which cloned KCNQ2/KCNQ3 channels were coexpressed with M1 muscarinic receptors.|
|Tissue Specificity||In adult and fetal brain. Highly expressed in areas containing neuronal cell bodies, low in spinal chord and corpus callosum. Isoform 2 is preferentially expressed in differentiated neurons. Isoform 6 is prominent in fetal brain, undifferentiated neuroblastoma cells and brain tumors. .|
|Subcellular Localization||Membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein.|

Predicted bind size: 96KD
Observed bind size: 96KD
1. Post-translational modification:phosphorylation, methylation, glycosylation etc. These modifications prevent SDS molecules from binding to the target protein and thus make the band size appear larger than expected
2. Post-translational cleavage: this can cause smaller bands and or multiple bands
3. Alternative splicing: the same gene can have alternative splicing patterns generating different size proteins, all with reactivities to the antibody.
4. Amino Acid R chain charge: SDS binds to positive charges. The different size and charge of the Amino Acid side chains can affect the amount of SDS binding and thus affect the observed band size.
5. Multimers: Multimers are usually broken up in reducing conditions. However if the interactions between the multimers are strong, the band may appear higher.,
