Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab85104 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
WB 1/200 - 1/1000. Detects a band of approximately 40 kDa.Can be blocked with Ghrelin Receptor peptide (ab134515).
IHC-P 1/100 - 1/500.


  • FunctionReceptor for ghrelin, coupled to G-alpha-11 proteins. Stimulates growth hormone secretion. Binds also other growth hormone releasing peptides (GHRP) (e.g. Met-enkephalin and GHRP-6) as well as non-peptide, low molecular weight secretagogues (e.g. L-692,429, MK-0677, adenosine).
  • Tissue specificityPituitary and hypothalamus.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in GHSR may be a cause of idiopathic short stature autosomal (ISSA) [MIM:604271]. Short stature is defined by a subnormal rate of growth.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the G-protein coupled receptor 1 family.
  • Cellular localizationCell membrane.

Antibody ab92520 is raised against a ghrelin receptor amino acid sequence that is found in both isoforms of the human receptor, so it should be capable of recognizing both. Antibody ab85104 is raised against a sequence derived from rat receptor that is...

The isoforms 1A and 1B differ in amino acid 266-289 and 290-366, as these are missing in Isoform 1B. Based on this data antibody ab125457 would detect the Isoform 1A only.

Thank you for your reply.
Unfortunately, we haven't tested if this ab85104 Anti-Ghrelin Receptor antibody can distinguish between the GHS-R1a and GHS-R1b protein. However, as the immunogen is derived from the conserved N-terminus of both forms, it...

Thanks for the purchase order information.
I am currently processing your replacement order which you should receive next week.
Thanks for your patience. Please contact me if you have any further questions.

I apologize for the confusion.
I just wanted to confirm that you were testing reactivity of the antibody with protein based on the rat or human sequence. As you confirmed you are working with human protein it does appear there is an issue with the...

Thanks for the additional information.
I just want to confirm that your cDNA for GHSR-1 is based on human or rat sequence, as those are the tested species to date.
Thanks again!

Thank you for submitting your completed questionnaire.
Just a few additional questions:
1) Is a full length GHSR-1 being expressed or is the consturct a fragment of GHSR-1?
2) What species of cDNA was used to produce the GHSR-1 clone? Read More
