Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab81702 in the following tested applications.

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

Application Abreviews Notes
  • Application notesICC/IF: Use at an assay dependent dilution.
    IHC-P: 1/25 - 1/50 for 60 minutes at room temperature. Staining of formalin fixed tissues requires boiling tissue sections in 10mM citrate buffer, pH 6.0, for 10-20 minutes followed by cooling at room temperature for 20 minutes.
    WB: Use at a concentration of 1 - 2 µg/ml for 2 hours at room temperature. Predicted molecular weight: 39 kDa.

    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
      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.
