Related Product Information for
anti-CANX antibody
Calnexin (CNX), an abundant ~90kD molecular chaperone, is an unglycosylated resident ER transmembrane protein. In mammalian cells, calnexin, together with calreticulin (CRT), plays a key role in glycoprotein folding and its control within the ER, by interacting with folding intermediates via their monoglucosylated glycans (4). Calnexin associates with newly synthesized monomeric glycoproteins and only recognizes glycoproteins when they are incompletely folded. Calnexin associates with numerous oligomeric protein complexes within the ER, including beta1 and alpha6 integrins (5), major histocompatibility class I (6, 7) and class II molecules (11), the antigen receptors expressed on T and B lymphocytes (7), human thyroperoxidase (hTPO) (12), and acetylcholine receptor (13). Recent data also suggest that calnexin might be responsible for the prolonged retention of pro-alpha6 integrin within ER compartment (14). Furthermore, calnexin has been demonstrated to function as a bonafide molecular chaperone capable of interacting with polypeptide segments of folding glycoproteins (15).

NCBI Summary for CANX
This gene encodes a member of the calnexin family of molecular chaperones. The encoded protein is a calcium-binding, endoplasmic reticulum (ER)-associated protein that interacts transiently with newly synthesized N-linked glycoproteins, facilitating protein folding and assembly. It may also play a central role in the quality control of protein folding by retaining incorrectly folded protein subunits within the ER for degradation. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding the same protein have been described. [provided by RefSeq]
UniProt Comments for CANX
Calnexin: a calcium-binding protein of the calreticulin family. A type I membrane protein of the endoplasmic reticulum .Interacts with newly synthesized glycoproteins in the endoplasmic reticulum. May act in assisting protein assembly and/or in the retention within the ER of unassembled protein subunits. It seems to play a major role in the quality control apparatus of the ER by the retention of incorrectly folded proteins.
