The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
1/500 - 1/1000. Detects a band of approximately 40 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 40 kDa).
1/500 - 1/1000.
FunctionReceptor for prostaglandin D2 (PGD2). The activity of this receptor is mainly mediated by G(s) proteins that stimulate adenylate cyclase, resulting in an elevation of intracellular cAMP. A mobilization of calcium is also observed, but without formation of inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate.
Tissue specificityExpressed in retinal choroid, ciliary epithelium, longitudinal and circular ciliary muscles, iris, small intestine and platelet membranes.
Involvement in diseaseGenetic variations in PTGDR are associated with susceptibility to asthma-related traits type 1 (ASRT1) [MIM:607277]. Asthma-related traits include clinical symptoms of asthma, such as coughing, wheezing and dyspnea.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the G-protein coupled receptor 1 family.
