This antibody gave a positive signal in the following whole cell lysates: NIH3T3; EL4; Raw 264.7; A549; HepG2 and in the following tissue lysates: Mouse lung; Mouse brain; Mouse kidney; Rat small intestine; Rat kidney.
Storage instructionsShipped at 4°C. Store at +4°C short term (1-2 weeks). Upon delivery aliquot. Store at -20°C or -80°C. Avoid freeze / thaw cycle.
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 40 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 40 kDa).
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.
