Scientific background

KCNQ1 (KV7.1) is part of a voltage-gated K+ family that includes 5 other members (KCNQ1-5).  

The channel has been intensively studied since it was found that together with MinK (Isk) it underlay the cardiac Iks current that controls the duration of the action potential of the human heart. Indeed mutations on either KV7.1 or MinK can be responsible for long QT syndrome, a cardiac disorder that causes arrhythmias and sudden death. 

Although KV7.1 expression and function has been mainly investigated in relation with cardiac function the channel is widely distributed in epithelial tissues. There it has been implicated in physiological functions such as: regulation of acid secretion in the stomach and Cl- secretion into the colon.

Anti-KCNQ1 (extracellular) Antibody (#APC-168) is a highly specific antibody directed against an extracellular epitope of the rat KCNQ1 (KV7.1). The antibody can be used in western blot, immunocytochemistry and live cell flow cytometry applications. It has been designed to recognize KCNQ1 from mouse, rat and human samples.

Anti-KCNQ1 (extracellular)-FITC Antibody (#APC-168-F) is directly conjugated to fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC) fluorophore. This conjugated antibody has been developed to be used in immunofluorescent applications such as direct flow cytometry and live cell imaging. It has been designed to recognize KCNQ1 from mouse, rat and human samples.
