  • Primary antibody notesCannabinoids exert their well known physiological effects through two G protein coupled receptors, cannabinoid receptor 1 (CB1) and CB2. Both cannabinoid receptors have been shown to inhibit adenylyl cyclase as well as stimulate the mitogen-activated protein kinase, MAPK. CB1 receptors also modulate ion channels through direct G-protein interactions. Delta 9-tetrahydrocannibinol and related ligands likely exert their psychoactive effects by inhibiting presynaptic N- and P / Q type calcium channels. CB2 is thought to function primarily in the immune system although it has been suggested to be present in the central nervous system, including the retina.

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab3560 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
ICC/IF Use at an assay dependent concentration.
IP Use at an assay dependent concentration. PubMed: 22387618
IHC-Fr 1/100.
Flow Cyt 1/50.
IHC-P 1/100.
ICC 1/100.
WB 1/250 - 1/2500. Detects a band of approximately 60 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 60 kDa).


  • FunctionHeterotrimeric G protein-coupled receptor for endocannabinoid 2-arachidonoylglycerol mediating inhibition of adenylate cyclase. May function in inflammatory response, nociceptive transmission and bone homeostasis.
  • Tissue specificityPreferentially expressed in cells of the immune system with higher expression in B cells and NK cells (at protein level). Expressed in skin in suprabasal layers and hair follicles (at protein level). Highly expressed in tonsil and to a lower extent in spleen, peripheral blood mononuclear cells, and thymus. PubMed:14657172 could not detect expression in normal brain. Expressed in brain by perivascular microglial cells and dorsal root glanglion sensory neurons (at protein level).
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the G-protein coupled receptor 1 family.
  • Post-translational
    Constitutively phosphorylated on Ser-352; phosphorylation increases cell internalization and desensitizes the receptor.
  • Cellular localizationCell membrane. Cell projection > dendrite. Perikaryon. Localizes to apical dendrite of pyramidal neurons.

Anti-Cannabinoid Receptor II antibody images

  • ICC/IF image of ab3560 stained SKNSH cells. The cells were 100% methanol fixed (5 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab3560, 10µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was ab96899, DyLight® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/250 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM.
