Scientific background

P2X receptors belong to the ligand-gated ion channel family and are activated by extracellular ATP. P2X receptors are involved in synaptic communication and in diseases of the nervous system. The P2X receptor family consists of at least seven isoforms: P2X1-P2X7.1,2,3  

All P2X subunits can assemble to form homomeric or heteromeric functional channels with the exception of P2X6, which only seems to function as part of a heteromeric complex.4-9  

The P2X6 receptor assembles to a heteromultimer with two other P2X subunits, P2X2 and P2X4.  

P2RX6 is extensively expressed throughout the central nervous system.7

Last update: 06/11/2022

Alomone Labs is pleased to offer a highly specific antibody directed against an epitope of the rat P2X6 purinergic receptor. Anti-P2X6 Receptor Antibody (#APR-028) can be used in western blot applications. The antibody recognizes an extracellular epitope and is thus ideal for detecting P2RX6 in living cells. It has been designed to recognize P2RX6 from rat, mouse and human samples.
