Gene Symbol PVALB
Gene Full Name parvalbumin
Background The protein encoded by this gene is a high affinity calcium ion-binding protein that is structurally and functionally similar to calmodulin and troponin C. The encoded protein is thought to be involved in muscle relaxation. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
Function In muscle, parvalbumin is thought to be involved in relaxation after contraction. It binds two calcium ions. [UniProt]
Calculated MW 12 kDa

  • ARG10686 anti-Parvalbumin antibody ICC/IF image

    Immunocytochemistry: Adult Rat cerebellum floating section was stained with ARG10686 anti-Parvalbumin antibody at 1:2500 (green). Parvalbumin is prominently expressed in the dendrites and perikarya of Purkinje cells and the molecular layer interneurons. Blue is a DNA stain.

  • ARG10686 anti-Parvalbumin antibody IHC-Fr image

    Immunohistochemistry: Frozen section of Rat cerebellum stained with ARG10686 anti-Parvalbumin antibody (green) at 1:2000 dilution and costained with Mouse mAb to GFAP (red) at 1:500 dilution. DAPI (blue) for nuclear staining. (Sample preparation: Following transcardial perfusion of Rat with 4% paraformaldehyde, brain was post fixed for 24 hours, cut to 45 µM, and free-floating sections were stained with the above antibodies.)

    The Parvalbumin antibody labels the perikarya and dendrites of Purkinje cells and interneurons in the molecular layer of the cerebellum. The GFAP antibody stains the processes of Bergmann glia and astrocytes.

  • ARG10686 anti-Parvalbumin antibody WB image

    Western blot: 1) Mouse skeletal muscle lysate, and His-tagged recombinant proteins: 2) parvalbumin, 3) calretinin, and 4) calbindin was stained with ARG10686 anti-Parvalbumin antibody at 1:2,500. In  skeletal muscle lysates, this antibody recognizes a band at 12 kDa which represents parvalbumin and it reacts only with parvalbumin and not the other calcium-binding proteins. This antibody does not recognize parvabumin in Rat or mouse brain lysates on western blots.
