The tag type will be determined during production process. If you have specified tag type, please tell us and we will develop the specified tag preferentially.
Form Lyophilized powder
Note: We will preferentially ship the format that we have in stock, however, if you have any special requirement for the format, please remark your requirement when placing the order, we will prepare according to your demand.
Buffer before Lyophilization Tris/PBS-based buffer, 6% Trehalose, pH 8.0
Reconstitution We recommend that this vial be briefly centrifuged prior to opening to bring the contents to the bottom. Please reconstitute protein in deionized sterile water to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/mL.We recommend to add 5-50% of glycerol (final concentration) and aliquot for long-term storage at -20℃/-80℃. Our default final concentration of glycerol is 50%. Customers could use it as reference.

Protein FAQs
Storage Condition Store at -20°C/-80°C upon receipt, aliquoting is necessary for mutiple use. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
Shelf Life The shelf life is related to many factors, storage state, buffer ingredients, storage temperature and the stability of the protein itself.
Generally, the shelf life of liquid form is 6 months at -20°C/-80°C. The shelf life of lyophilized form is 12 months at -20°C/-80°C.
Lead Time Delivery time may differ from different purchasing way or location, please kindly consult your local distributors for specific delivery time.
Note: All of our proteins are default shipped with normal blue ice packs, if you request to ship with dry ice, please communicate with us in advance and extra fees will be charged.
Notes Repeated freezing and thawing is not recommended. Store working aliquots at 4°C for up to one week.

Target Background

Subunit of the rod cyclic GMP-gated cation channel, which is involved in the final stage of the phototransduction pathway. When light hits rod photoreceptors, cGMP concentrations decrease causing rapid closure of CNGA1/CNGB1 channels and, therefore, hyperpolarization of the membrane potential.
Gene References into Functions
  1. Compound heterozygous mutations (NM000087, p.Y82X and p.L89fs) in exon 6 of CNGA1are pathogenic mutations in this Chinese family affected with autosomal recessive retinitis pigmentosa. Of which, p.Y82X is firstly reported in patient with autosomal recessive retinitis pigmentosa. PMID: 27391953
  2. The mut CNGA1 p.(G513R) protein was largely retained inside the cell rather than being targeted to the plasma membrane, suggesting the absence of cGMP-gated cation channels in the plasma membrane PMID: 26802146
  3. CNGA1 mutations are one of the most frequent autosomal recessive retinitis pigmentosa-causing mutations in the Japanese patients. PMID: 25268133
  4. Insulin receptor (IR), an integral membrane protein, directly phosphorylates the CNGA1 subunit of CNG channels that in turn affects the function of these channels negatively. CNGA1 is a direct substrate of IR. PMID: 23032687
  5. Novel homozygous mutation R28X truncates CNGA1 very prematurely in patients with autosomal recessive retinitis pigmentosa. PMID: 12362048
  6. isolated an endogenous transcript (anti-CNG1) that is antisense to CNG1 mRNA; data suggest the suppression of CNG(alpha)1 expression by anti-CNG1 may play an important role in neuronal functions, especially in synaptic plasticity and cortical development PMID: 12388767
  7. The heteromeric cyclic nucleotide-gated channel adopts a 3A:1B stoichiometry PMID: 12432397
  8. The autosomal recessive retinitis pigmentosa in this family is caused by a mutation in CNGA1 gene. PMID: 15570217
  9. Expressed in a stage- and cell-specific manner in the rat testis. PMID: 15713832
