 Product Note    Our ELISA Kit assays are dynamic research tools and sometimes they may be updated and improved. If the format of this assay is important to you then please request the current manual or contact our technical support team with a presales inquiry before placing an order. We will confirm the current details of the assay. We cannot guarantee the sample manual posted online is the most current manual.
 Other Notes    Small volumes of GJA8 elisa kit vial(s) may occasionally become entrapped in the seal of the product vial during shipment and storage. If necessary, briefly centrifuge the vial on a tabletop centrifuge to dislodge any liquid in the container`s cap. Certain products may require to ship with dry ice and additional dry ice fee may apply.
 Searchable Terms for GJA8 purchase    MBS9329654 is a ready-to-use microwell, strip plate ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) Kit for analyzing the presence of the gap junction protein, alpha 8, 50kDa (GJA8) ELISA Kit target analytes in biological samples. The concentration gradients of the kit standards or positive controls render a theoretical kit detection range in biological research samples containing GJA8. The ELISA analytical biochemical technique of the MBS9329654 kit is based on GJA8 antibody-GJA8 antigen interactions (immunosorbency) and an HRP colorimetric detection system to detect GJA8 antigen targets in samples. The ELISA Kit is designed to detect native, not recombinant, GJA8. Appropriate sample types may include undiluted body fluids and/or tissue homogenates, secretions. Quality control assays assessing reproducibility identified the intra-assay CV (%) and inter-assay CV(%).

 NCBI Summary for GJA8    This gene encodes a transmembrane connexin protein that is necessary for lens growth and maturation of lens fiber cells. The encoded protein is a component of gap junction channels and functions in a calcium and pH-dependent manner. Mutations in this gene have been associated with zonular pulverulent cataracts, nuclear progressive cataracts, and cataract-microcornea syndrome. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2009]
Section Bar
 UniProt Comments for GJA8    GJA8: One gap junction consists of a cluster of closely packed pairs of transmembrane channels, the connexons, through which materials of low MW diffuse from one cell to a neighboring cell. A connexon is composed of a hexamer of connexins. This particular connexin only forms junctional channels. Eye lens. Belongs to the connexin family. Alpha-type (group II) subfamily.

Protein type: Membrane protein, multi-pass; Membrane protein, integral; Channel, misc.

Chromosomal Location of Human Ortholog: 1q21.1

Cellular Component: connexon complex; integral to plasma membrane

Molecular Function: channel activity; gap junction channel activity

Biological Process: lens development in camera-type eye; visual perception; cell-cell signaling; transport; transmembrane transport; protein homooligomerization

Disease: Cataract 1, Multiple Types
