Scientific background

TASK1-5 are members of the two-pore domain K+ channels. They have four transmembrane domains and assist in setting the resting membrane potential.

TASK5 (K2P15.1, KCNK15) was identified using the TASK-3 sequence in a GenBank search. However, when expressed in COS-7 cells, it does not form a functional K+ current1.

The channel is distributed in the brain, heart, lung, kidney, liver, pancreas, adrenal gland and placenta2.

Application key:

CBE- Cell-based ELISA, FC- Flow cytometry, ICC- Immunocytochemistry, IE- Indirect ELISA, IF- Immunofluorescence, IFC- Indirect flow cytometry, IHC- Immunohistochemistry, IP- Immunoprecipitation, LCI- Live cell imaging, N- Neutralization, WB- Western blot

Species reactivity key:

H- Human, M- Mouse, R- Rat
Last update: 08/06/2021

Alomone Labs is pleased to offer a highly specific antibody directed against an epitope of the rat KCNK15 channel. Anti-KCNK15 (TASK-5) (extracellular) Antibody (#APC-158) can be used in western blot analysis. The antibody recognizes an extracellular epitope and is thus ideal for detecting the channel in living cells. It has been designed to recognize KCNK15 from rat and mouse samples. The antibody will unlikely recognize the channel from human samples.
