Gene Name SCN1B
Protein Name Sodium channel subunit beta-1
Molecular Weight 24707 MW
Protein Function Crucial in the assembly, expression, and functional modulation of the heterotrimeric complex of the sodium channel. The subunit beta-1 can modulate multiple alpha subunit isoforms from brain, skeletal muscle, and heart. Its association with neurofascin may target the sodium channels to the nodes of Ranvier of developing axons and retain these channels at the nodes in mature myelinated axons. .
Tissue Specificity The overall expression of isoforms 1 and 2 is very similar. Isoform 1 is abundantly expressed in skeletal muscle, heart and brain. Isoform 2 is highly expressed in brain and skeletal muscle and present at a very low level in heart, placenta, lung, liver, kidney and pancreas. In brain, isoform 2 is most abundant in the cerebellum, followed by the cerebral cortex and occipital lobe, while isoform 1 levels are higher in the cortex compared to the cerebellum. Isoform 2 is expressed in many regions of the brain, including cerebellar Purkinje cells, cortex pyramidal neurons and many of the neuronal fibers throughout the brain (at protein level). Also detected in dorsal root ganglion, in fibers of the spinal nerve and in cortical neurons and their processes (at protein level). .
Sequence Similarities Belongs to the sodium channel auxiliary subunit SCN1B (TC 8.A.17) family.
Subcellular Localization Membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein.
Uniprot ID Q07699

Background for Sodium channel subunit beta-1

Voltage-gated sodium(Na+) channels are essential for the generation and propagation of action potentials in striated muscle and neuronal tissues. The complete coding region of Sodium channel, voltage-gated, beta 1(SCN1B) is found in approximately 9.0 kb of genomic DNA and consists of five exons(72 to 749 bp) and four introns(90 bp to 5.5 kb). It is mapped to 19q13.1 and can act as a candidate gene for hereditary disorders affecting membrane excitability. Sodium channel beta1 subunits play important roles in the regulation of sodium channel density and localization and are involved in axo-glial communication at nodes of Ranvier.

Q: Do you offer BSA-free antibodies? Keyword: Bovine serum albumin, carrier protein, conjugation
A: Yes, please contact us at for more information about BSA-free antibodies and availability. The new BSA-free formula uses trehalose as a replacement to BSA. We have tested many alternative chemicals and found that trehalose protects the antibodies the best.
Q: Is your western blot protocol provided from the website applicable for all your antibodies? Keyword: applications, WB
A: The protocol is applicable for all our antibodies in WB, the NC Membrane(0.45μm or 0.22μm) and transfer time(70 mins or 50 mins) depends on the protein molecular weight, details can be found in included protocol.
Q: Can I conjugate markers to this antibody? Can I link custom conjugates to this antibody? Keyword: conjugation
A: The antibody is stored with BSA and cannot be conjugated with markers. Carrier free antibodies are available upon request. Please contact
Q: What should I use for negative control?
A: Please contact us for negative control suggestions. You can also check expression databases such as genecards, uniprot etc. Due to logistic reasons, we do not sell serum or lysates that we use internally for positive or negative control.
Q: Where can I find troubleshooting information? What should I do if I have unexpected bands, high background, no signal, weak signal
A: You can find Boster's troubleshoot guides under tech support tab. Please contact us for further assistance on troubleshooting your experiment.
Q: What is the immunogen sequence of this antibody? Is this antibody polyclonal or monoclonal?
A: You can find the immunogen sequence under "Immunogen" and clonality in the product name.
Q: What is the expected band size? Why is it different than the observed band size?
A: The expected band size is predicted on the size of the protein. The actual band size may be affected by a few other factors including but not limited to:
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.,
Q: What is the suggested dilution ratio for Western Blot (WB), Immunohistochemistry (IHC) and or ELISA standards? What is the optimal pH for the sample?
A: Check the datasheet for the product for details on dilution ratios for different experiments. You can find the datasheet button on the right side of the product page.
Q: What is the protocol you used for your Western blotting (WB) and Immunohistochemistry (IHC)?
A: Check our protocols under the tech support tab.
