The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Measured by its ability to inhibit GH-induced proliferation of Nb2-11 rat lymphoma cells in the presence of 0.2 ng/mL of rhGH. The ED50 for this effect is typically 0.8 - 3.5 ng/ml.

Preparation and Storage
Stability and Storage
Shipped at 4°C. Store at 4°C (stable for up to 12 months). Store at -80°C. Avoid freeze / thaw cycle. For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein on reconstitution (0.1% HSA or BSA).
This product is an active protein and may elicit a biological response in vivo, handle with caution.
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized protein in deionized water to a final concentration of 1 mg/ml. Solubilize for 30 to 60 minutes at room temperature with occasional gentle mixing.

Serum binding protein
Receptor for pituitary gland growth hormone involved in regulating postnatal body growth. On ligand binding, couples to the JAK2/STAT5 pathway. The soluble form (GHBP) acts as a reservoir of growth hormone in plasma and may be a modulator/inhibitor of GH signaling. Isoform 2 up-regulates the production of GHBP and acts as a negative inhibitor of GH signaling.
Expressed in various tissues with high expression in liver and skeletal muscle. Isoform 4 is predominantly expressed in kidney, bladder, adrenal gland and brain stem. Isoform 1 expression in placenta is predominant in chorion and decidua. Isoform 4 is highly expressed in placental villi. Isoform 2 is expressed in lung, stomach and muscle. Low levels in liver.
Involvement in disease
Defects in GHR are a cause of Laron syndrome (LARS) [MIM:262500]. A severe form of growth hormone insensitivity characterized by growth impairment, short stature, dysfunctional growth hormone receptor, and failure to generate insulin-like growth factor I in response to growth hormone. Defects in GHR may be a cause of idiopathic short stature autosomal (ISSA) [MIM:604271]. Short stature is defined by a subnormal rate of growth.
Belongs to the type I cytokine receptor family. Type 1 subfamily. Contains 1 fibronectin type-III domain.
The WSXWS motif appears to be necessary for proper protein folding and thereby efficient intracellular transport and cell-surface receptor binding. The box 1 motif is required for JAK interaction and/or activation. The extracellular domain is the ligand-binding domain representing the growth hormone-binding protein (GHBP). The ubiquitination-dependent endocytosis motif (UbE) is required for recruitment of the ubiquitin conjugation system on to the receptor and for its internalization.
The soluble form (GHBP) is produced by phorbol ester-promoted proteolytic cleavage at the cell surface (shedding) by ADAM17/TACE. Shedding is inhibited by growth hormone (GH) binding to the receptor probably due to a conformational change in GHR rendering the receptor inaccessible to ADAM17. On GH binding, phosphorylated on tyrosine residues in the cytoplasmic domain by JAK2. On ligand binding, ubiquitinated on lysine residues in the cytoplasmic domain. This ubiquitination is not sufficient for GHR internalization.
Secreted; Cell membrane. On growth hormone binding, GHR is ubiquitinated, internalized, down-regulated and transported into a degradative or non-degradative pathway and Cell membrane. Remains fixed to the cell membrane and is not internalized.
SDS-PAGE - Active human Growth hormone receptor protein fragment (ab180056)
SDS-PAGE analysis of ab180056 in reducing (lane 1) and non-reducing (lane 2) conditions. Gel stained overnight with Coomassie Blue. As a result of glycosylation, DTT-reduced protein migrates as 66-85 kDa and non-reduced protein migrates as 135-160 kDa.
