This is a highly specific antibody against 5HT3D + 5HT3E Receptor.
Cross-reactive species details
Due to limited amount of testing and knowledge, not every possible cross-reactivity is known.
This antibody was obtained by immunization of the host with KLH conjugated synthetic peptide derived from human 5HT3D + 5HT3E Receptor

The receptors are ligand binding factors of type 1, 2 or 3 and protein-molecules that receive chemical-signals from outside a cell. When such chemical-signals couple or bind to a receptor, they cause some form of cellular/tissue-response, e.g. a change in the electrical-activity of a cell. In this sense, am olfactory receptor is a protein-molecule that recognizes and responds to endogenous-chemical signals, chemokinesor cytokines e.g. an acetylcholine-receptor recognizes and responds to its endogenous-ligand, acetylcholine. However, sometimes in pharmacology, the term is also used to include other proteins that are drug-targets, such as enzymes, transporters and ion-channels.
Background of the antigen
Serotonin is a monoamine neurotransmitter that is made in serotonergic neurons in the CNS (central nervous system) and is important in the regulation of mood, sleep, vomiting, sexuality and appetite. 5-HT3 (5-hydroxytryptamine-3) receptor is the only ligand-gated ion channel within the family of serotonin receptors. It is composed of five subunits consisting of SR-3A, SR-3B, HTR3C, HTR3D and HTR3E. HTR3D (5-hydroxytryptamine receptor 3D), also known as Serotonin receptor 3D, is a 454 amino acid multi-pass membrane protein that is one components of the pentaheteromeric complex that forms the 5-HT3 receptor. HTR3D must be co-expressed with SR-3A to form a functional 5-HT3 receptor complex on the plasma membrane. Until it is complexed with SR-3A, HTR3D is localized within the endoplasmic reticulum. Expression of HTR3D is restricted to kidney, colon and liver. There are three different isoforms of HTR3D that are expressed as a result of alternative splicing events.
