The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 0.5 - 4 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 43 kDa.
FunctionReceptor for globular and full-length adiponectin (APM1), an essential hormone secreted by adipocytes that acts as an antidiabetic. Probably involved in metabolic pathways that regulate lipid metabolism such as fatty acid oxidation. Mediates increased AMPK, PPARA ligand activity, fatty acid oxidation and glucose uptake by adiponectin. Has some high-affinity receptor for globular adiponectin but low-affinity receptor for full-length adiponectin.
Tissue specificityWidely expressed. Highly expressed in skeletal muscle. Expressed at intermediate level in brain, heart, spleen, kidney, liver, placenta, lung and peripheral blood leukocytes. Weakly expressed in colon, thymus and small intestine.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the ADIPOR family.
DomainThe N-terminus is known to be cytoplasmic while the C-terminus is known to be extracellular.
Cellular localizationMembrane. Localized to the cell membrane and intracellular organelles.
