The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Blocking - Blocking peptide for Anti-Cannabinoid Receptor II antibody (ab45942)
- First try to dissolve a small amount of peptide in either water or buffer. The more charged residues on a peptide, the more soluble it is in aqueous solutions. - If the peptide doesn’t dissolve try an organic solvent e.g. DMSO, then dilute using water or buffer. - Consider that any solvent used must be compatible with your assay. If a peptide does not dissolve and you need to recover it, lyophilise to remove the solvent. - Gentle warming and sonication can effectively aid peptide solubilisation. If the solution is cloudy or has gelled the peptide may be in suspension rather than solubilised. - Peptides containing cysteine are easily oxidised, so should be prepared in solution just prior to use.

Cannabinoid receptor 2
Cannabinoid receptor 2 macrophage
testis-dominant CNR2 isoform CB2
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 modificationsConstitutively 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.
