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

Application Abreviews Notes
WB Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 140 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 119 kDa).
ICC/IF Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml.


  • FunctionReceptor for the atrial natriuretic peptide NPPA/ANP and the brain natriuretic peptide NPPB/BNP which are potent vasoactive hormones playing a key role in cardiovascular homeostasis. Has guanylate cyclase activity upon binding of the ligand.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the adenylyl cyclase class-4/guanylyl cyclase family.
    Contains 1 guanylate cyclase domain.
    Contains 1 protein kinase domain.
  • Post-translational
    Phosphorylation of the protein kinase-like domain is required for full activation by ANP.
  • Cellular localizationMembrane.

    Goat polyclonal to Rabbit IgG - H&L - Pre-Adsorbed (HRP) at 1/3000 dilution

    Performed under reducing conditions.

    Predicted band size : 119 kDa
    Observed band size : 140 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
    Additional bands at : 60 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.
  • ICC/IF image of ab40817 stained human HEK 293 cells. The cells were methanol fixed (5 min), permabilised in TBS-T (20 min) and incubated with the antibody (ab40817, 1µg/ml) for 1h at room temperature. 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine was used to quench autofluorescence and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The secondary antibody (green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red). DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue).
