Application Abreviews Notes
WB
  • Application notesWB: 1/500 - 1/2000. Predicted molecular weight: 40 kDa. To minimise background staining, it is recommended to use higher content of detergent Tween 20 to dilute the antibody and during washing.

    Not yet tested in other applications.
    Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
  • Target

    • FunctionPhotoreceptor required for image-forming vision at low light intensity. Required for photoreceptor cell viability after birth. Light-induced isomerization of 11-cis to all-trans retinal triggers a conformational change leading to G-protein activation and release of all-trans retinal.
    • Tissue specificityRod shaped photoreceptor cells which mediates vision in dim light.
    • Involvement in diseaseRetinitis pigmentosa 4
      Night blindness, congenital stationary, autosomal dominant 1
    • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the G-protein coupled receptor 1 family. Opsin subfamily.
    • Post-translational
      modifications
      Phosphorylated on some or all of the serine and threonine residues present in the C-terminal region.
      Contains one covalently linked retinal chromophore.
    • Cellular localizationMembrane. Synthesized in the inner segment (IS) of rod photoreceptor cells before vectorial transport to the rod outer segment (OS) photosensory cilia.
