Detection of Human Pannexin-3 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of SW1353 human chondrosarcoma cell line and Bowes human melanoma cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 2 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human Pannexin-3 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB8169) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF018). A specific band was detected for Pannexin-3 at approximately 49 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 8.

Pannexin-3 (PANX3) is an approximately 45 kDa member of the Pannexin family of four-transmembrane channel proteins with a conserved pattern of cysteines. It is expressed in skin, cochlea, and developing hard tissues including cartilage and bone. In osteoblasts, it forms Ca2+ channels in the endoplasmic reticulum and promotes osteogenic differentiation. It also forms gap junction channels that pass Ca2+ between cells, and ATP-releasing hemichannels in the plasma membrane. Within aa 289-384 (in the C-terminal cytoplasmic domain), human Pannexin-3 shares 95% and 99% aa sequence identity with mouse and rat Pannexin-3, respectively.
