KLH conjugated synthetic peptide derived from human UTS2R
Cross reactive species
Human (Homo sapiens), Mouse (Mus musculus), Rat (Rattus norvegicus)
Water buffered solution containing 100ug/ml BSA, 50% glycerol and 0.09% sodium azide. Store at 4°C for 12 months.
This antibody needs to be stored at + 4°C in a fridge short term in a concentrated dilution. Freeze thaw will destroy a percentage in every cycle and should be avoided.
Polyclonals can be used for Western blot, immunohistochemistry on frozen slices or parrafin fixed tissues. The advantage is that there are more epitopes available in a polyclonal antiserum to detect the proteins than in monoclonal sera.
Cross Reactive Species details
No significant cross reactivity has been observed for this antibody for the tested species. However, note that due to limited knowledge it is impossible to predict with 100% guarantee that the antibody does not corss react with any other species.
G protein coupled receptor 14; Urotensin II receptor UR II R; UTR; UTR2; UTS2R; G Protein Coupled Receptor 14; GPCR GPR14; Urotensin II receptor; UR-II-R; UR-2-R; G-protein coupled receptor 14; G-protein coupled sensory epithelial neuropeptide-like receptor; SENR; GPR14; UR2R_HUMAN; GPCR GPR14.
Avoid freeze/thaw cycles as they may denaturate the polypeptide chains of the antibody, thus reducing its reactivity, specificity and sensitivity. For antibodies that are in liquid form or reconstituted lyophilized antibodies small amounts could become entrapped on the seal or the walls of the tube. Prior to use briefly centrifuge the vial to gather all the solution on the bottom.
GPCR GPR14 has been reported to be expressed at high levels in the heart and pancreas and also in artery and smooth muscle. Low transcript levels have been identified in brain, particularly in thalamus, superior occipital gyrus, and substantia nigra. GPR14 is a high affinity receptor for urotensin-2 and urotensin-2B. The activity of this receptor is mediated by a G-protein that activates a phosphatidylinositol-calcium second messenger system. Referenced from Swiss-Prot Q9UKP6.
