Fast track antibodies constitute a diverse group of products that have been released to accelerate your research, but are not yet fully characterized. They have all been affinity purified and show high titre values against the immunizing peptide (by ELISA).
Use at an assay dependent concentration. Predicted molecular weight: 46 kDa. Preliminary experiments gave bands at approx 37kDa and 35kDa in Human Brain (Hippocampus, Substantia nigra) lysates after 0.1µg/ml antibody staining. Please note that currently we cannot find an explanation in the literature for the bands we observe given the calculated size of 46.1kDa according to NP_000515.2. Both detected bands were successfully blocked by incubation with the immunizing peptide.
FunctionThis is one of the several different receptors for 5-hydroxytryptamine (serotonin), a biogenic hormone that functions as a neurotransmitter, a hormone, and a mitogen. The activity of this receptor is mediated by G proteins that inhibit adenylate cyclase activity.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the G-protein coupled receptor 1 family. 5-hydroxytryptamine receptor subfamily. HTR1A sub-subfamily.
