Anti-SCGN antibody produced in rabbit, a Prestige Antibody, is developed and validated by the Human Protein Atlas (HPA) project . Each antibody is tested by immunohistochemistry against hundreds of normal and disease tissues. These images can be viewed on the Human Protein Atlas (HPA) site by clicking on the Image Gallery link. The antibodies are also tested using immunofluorescence and western blotting. To view these protocols and other useful information about Prestige Antibodies and the HPA, visit sigma.com/prestige.

Biochem/physiol Actions

SCGN (Secretagogin) is mainly acting as a calcium ion sensor in the Ca2+-induced exocytosis and membrane fusion in neurons and in neuroendocrine cells. It can bind four Ca2+ ions, but interacts with only one SCGN interacting protein. It acts as a serum marker for identifying neuronal damage. It has been reported that SCGN may control the intracellular Ca2+ signaling pathway by reflecting cellular responses to the micro-environmental stimuli. Furthermore, neuroprotective effects of SCGN also have been documented in the Alzheimer′s disease.

Features and Benefits

Prestige Antibodies® are highly characterized and extensively validated antibodies with the added benefit of all available characterization data for each target being accessible via the Human Protein Atlas portal linked just below the product name at the top of this page. The uniqueness and low cross-reactivity of the Prestige Antibodies® to other proteins are due to a thorough selection of antigen regions, affinity purification, and stringent selection. Prestige antigen controls are available for every corresponding Prestige Antibody and can be found in the linkage section.Every Prestige Antibody is tested in the following ways: IHC tissue array of 44 normal human tissues and 20 of the most common cancer type tissues. Protein array of 364 human recombinant protein fragments.

General description

SCGN (Secretagogin) is a novel EF-hand, cell type specific, Ca-binding protein (CBP). It is expressed in the neuroendocrine cells. Specifically, its expression has been reported in the (entero)-endocrine cells and in neuroendocrine cells in the periphery and in the mammalian brain. It is involved in the regulation of intracellular Ca2+ dynamics. It contains a Ca2+ binding domain and six putative EF hand motifs.
