Rabbit anti Human Gi alpha 1/2Catalog number: X1595P
GTP-binding proteins (G-proteins) play a critical role in signal transduction by coupling receptors to effectors. The intracellular consequences of G-protein activation include second messenger generation, protein phosphorylation, ion channel activation, gene induction, cell growth, and differentiation. Gi belongs to the pertussis toxin sensitive G-proteins. Gi consists of three different subtypes of -subunits ( i1, i2 and i3)
Rabbits were immunized with a peptide corresponding to amino acids 345-354 of Gi 1 and 346-355 of Gi 2.
