The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 52 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 42 kDa).
FunctionReceptor for the lysosphingolipid sphingosine 1-phosphate (S1P). S1P is a bioactive lysophospholipid that elicits diverse physiological effect on most types of cells and tissues. When expressed in rat HTC4 hepatoma cells, is capable of mediating S1P-induced cell proliferation and suppression of apoptosis.
Tissue specificityExpressed in all tissues, but most abundantly in heart, placenta, kidney, and liver.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the G-protein coupled receptor 1 family.
