    Scientific background

    Voltage-gated sodium channels (NaV) are essential for the generation of action potentials and for cell excitability.1 NaV channels are activated in response to depolarization and selectively allow flow of Na+ ions. To date, nine NaV α subunits have been cloned and named NaV1.1-NaV1.9.4-5 The NaV channels are classified into two groups according to their sensitivity to Tetrodotoxin (TTX): TTX-sensitive (NaV1.1, NaV1.2, NaV1.3, NaV1.4, NaV1.6 and NaV1.7) and TTX-resistant (NaV1.5, NaV1.8 and NaV1.9).2-3

    Mammalian sodium channels are heterotrimers, composed of a central, pore-forming α subunit and two auxiliary β subunits. The expression of the α subunit isoform is developmentally regulated and tissue specific. Sodium channels in the adult central nervous system and heart contain β1 through β4 subunits, whereas sodium channels in adult skeletal muscle have only the β1 subunit.6,7

    NaV1.2, also known as SCN2A, is primarily expressed in the central nervous system (CNS) and is localized in unmyelinated or premyelinated axons and dendrites. Mutations in the NaV1.2 channel have been identified in different types of epilepsy.

    Anti-SCN2A (NaV1.2) Antibody (#ASC-002) is a highly specific antibody directed against an epitope of the rat protein. The antibody can be used in western blot, immunoprecipitation, immunohistochemistry, and immunocytochemistry applications. It has been designed to recognize NaV1.2 from rat, human, and mouse samples.

    • Anti-SCN2A (NaV1.2) Antibody
      Expression of NaV1.6 increases in rat mECs during epileptogenesis.
      A. Immunohistochemical of rat mECs using Anti-NaV1.6 (SCN8A) Antibody (#ASC-009). NaV1.6 staining is detected in AIS and increases in post-SE tissue. The channel co-localizes with Ankryn-G, a marker of AIS. B. Ratio of post-SE and control tissues shows that NaV1.6 expression increases by 46%. C. Somatal expression for NaV1.6 and NaV1.2 (using Anti-SCN2A (NaV1.2) Antibody (#ASC-002)). D. Normalized expression of the channel expression shows that both NaV1.2 and NaV1.6 expression increases in the soma of post-SE tissues. NaV1.1 and NaV1.3 expression, detected using Anti-SCN1A (NaV1.1) Antibody (#ASC-001) and Anti-SCN3A (NaV1.3) Antibody (#ASC-004), respectively, does not change during epileptogenesis.
