The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 20 µg/ml. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with citrate buffer pH 6 before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
FunctionOrphan receptor. Probably involved in the function of nociceptive neurons. May regulate nociceptor function and/or development, including the sensation or modulation of pain. Cortistatin-14 seems to be a high potency ligand at this receptor. Cortistatin has several biological functions including roles in sleep regulation locomotor activity, and cortical function. In receptor-expressing cells, cortistatin-stimulated increases in intracellular Ca(2+) but had no effect on basal or forskolin-stimulated cAMP levels, suggesting that this receptor is G(q)-coupled.
Tissue specificityHas a limited expression profile, both peripheral and within the central nervous system, with highest levels in dorsal root ganglion.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the G-protein coupled receptor 1 family. Mas subfamily.
Human spinal cord, DRG (formalin fixed, paraffin embedded tissue) stained with ab116712 at 20 µg/ml, followed by biotinylated goat anti-rabbit IgG secondary antibody, alkaline phosphatase-streptavidin and chromogen.
