Detection of Human/Mouse/Rat Secretagogin by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of beta TC‑6 mouse beta cell insulinoma cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Goat Anti-Human/Mouse/Rat Secretagogin Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF4878) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF019). A specific band was detected for Secretagogin at approximately 32 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.
Detection of Human and Mouse Secretagogin by Simple WesternTM.
Simple Western lane view shows lysates of beta TC‑6 mouse beta cell insulinoma cell line and human pancreas tissue, loaded at 0.2 mg/mL. A specific band was detected for Secretagogin at approximately 38 kDa (as indicated) using 10 µg/mL of Goat Anti-Human/Mouse/Rat Secretagogin Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF4878) followed by 1:50 dilution of HRP-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF109). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using the 12-230 kDa separation system.

Secretagogin (SCGN) is a 32 kDa member of the EF-hand family of Ca-binding proteins. It is expressed in select neurons, as well as neuroendocrine cells and pancreatic islets. Human Secretagogin is 276 amino acids (aa) in length and contains six 35 aa EF-hand domains (aa 12‑276). There is one alternative splice variant that shows a 22 aa substitution for aa 28‑276, and which demonstrates no Ca-binding ability. Secretagogin is known to circulate, presumably released during cell apoptosis. Over aa 164‑276, human Secretagogin is more than 97% aa identical to mouse, porcine and canine Secretagogin.
