The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 0.1 - 0.3 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 60 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 86 kDa). The observed molecular weight corresponds to findings with ab58574, a product of different design reacting to a different part of the same protein.
FunctionG protein-coupled receptor that probably associates with the patched protein (PTCH) to transduce the hedgehog's proteins signal. Binding of sonic hedgehog (SHH) to its receptor patched is thought to prevent normal inhibition by patched of smoothened (SMO). Required for the accumulation of KIF7 and GLI3 in the cilia.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the G-protein coupled receptor Fz/Smo family. Contains 1 FZ (frizzled) domain.
