  • Primary antibody notesAdenosine receptors (ARs) are members of the 7-transmembrane domain G-protein-coupled receptor superfamily. Structural, biochemical and pharmacological analyses of the AR genes and protein has led to the discovery of four distinct AR subtypes (A1, A2a, A2b, A3). Activation of ARs mediates several receptor subtype-specific physiological processes that include cardiac rate, smooth muscle tone, platelet aggregation, inflammation, cell growth and death, and neurotransmission. The A1AR is a glycoprotein that can activate Gi and Go proteins in vitro. In intact cells, agonist occupation of the A1AR has been shown to cause pertussis toxin-sensitive inhibition of adenylyl cyclase activity and, in some systems, a stimulation of phospholipase C resulting in mobilization of intracellular calcium stores. Activation of potassium channels by A1AR has been intensively studied in relation to its dramatic effects on the cardiovascular system. A1AR protein is highly expressed in brain (especially cerebellum, hippocampus, thalamus, and cortex) and spinal cord and in part, modulates neurotransmitter release. In white adipocytes A1AR inhibits lipolysis and stimulates glucose uptake. Other tissues also express A1AR including kidney and testis.

  • ab3460 labelling Adenosine A1 receptor in the cytoplasm of Rat brain tissue (right) compared with a negative control (left) by Immunohistochemistry (formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin embedded sections). To expose target proteins, antigen retrieval method was performed using 10mM sodium citrate (pH 6.0) microwaved for 8-15 min. Following antigen retrieval, tissues were blocked in 3% H2O2-methanol for 15 min at room temperature. Tissue sections were incubated with the primary antibody (1:100 in 3% BSA-PBS) overnight at 4°C. A HRP-conjugated anti-rabbit IgG was used as the secondary antibody, followed by colorimetric detection using a DAB kit. Tissues were counterstained with hematoxylin and dehydrated with ethanol and xylene to prep for mounting.

Following up my previous message, the immunogen for ab124780, an alternative to ab3460, is also unfortunately unlikely to react with canine Adenosine A1 Receptor. Alignment of the canine receptor amino acid sequence with that of the ab124780 immunogen ...

Thank you for contacting us. I think the issue is probably that the homology between the immunogen and the canine receptor is low: 67% identity. We do not have a dog AAR1 to test this.

In general, for multi-pass membrane receptors, we sugges...

Thank you for your reply. If the signal is stronger on frozen section compared to formalin-fixed sections, it indicates that the epitope unmasking may not be proper. We would suggest trying to treat the samples in microwave for different times and ...
