Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab124144 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
IHC-P Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
WB Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 55 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 41 kDa).


  • FunctionReceptor for somatostatins-14 and -28. This receptor is coupled via pertussis toxin sensitive G proteins to inhibition of adenylyl cyclase. In addition it stimulates phosphotyrosine phosphatase and PLC via pertussis toxin insensitive as well as sensitive G proteins. In RIN-5F cells, this receptor inhibits calcium entry by suppressing voltage dependent calcium-channels.
  • Tissue specificityCerebrum and kidney. In lesser amounts in jejunum, colon and liver.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the G-protein coupled receptor 1 family.
  • Cellular localizationCell membrane.

    Performed under reducing conditions.

    Predicted band size : 41 kDa
    Observed band size : 55 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
    Additional bands at : 27 kDa,70 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.

    Exposure time : 6 minutes
  • IHC image of Somatostatin Receptor 2 staining in mouse normal pancreas formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue section, performed on a Leica BondTM system using the standard protocol F. The section was pre-treated using heat mediated antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH6, epitope retrieval solution 1) for 20 mins. The section was then incubated with ab124144, 5µg/ml, for 15 mins at room temperature and detected using an HRP conjugated compact polymer system. DAB was used as the chromogen. The section was then counterstained with haematoxylin and mounted with DPX.

    For other IHC staining systems (automated and non-automated) customers should optimize variable parameters such as antigen retrieval conditions, primary antibody concentration and antibody incubation times.
