Application Abreviews Notes
WB 1/1000 - 1/10000. Predicted molecular weight: 39 kDa.Can be blocked with Somatostatin Receptor 5 peptide (ab178801).
IHC-P 1/100 - 1/250. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval via the pressure cooker method before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
ICC 1/100 - 1/250.
  • Application notes
    Is unsuitable for Flow Cyt or IP.
  • Target

    • Function
      Receptor for somatostatin 28 and to a lesser extent for somatostatin-14. The activity of this receptor is mediated by G proteins which inhibit adenylyl cyclase.
    • Tissue specificity
      Adult pituitary gland, heart, small intestine, adrenal gland, cerebellum and fetal hypothalamus. No expression in fetal or adult kidney, liver, pancreas, uterus, spleen, lung, thyroid or ovary.
    • Sequence similarities
      Belongs to the G-protein coupled receptor 1 family.
    • Cellular localization
      Cell membrane.

    • ICC/IF image of ab109495 stained Panc-1 cells. The cells were 4% formaldehyde fixed (10 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody ab109495 at 10µg/ml overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (pseudo-colored green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti- rabbit (ab150081) IgG (H+L) preadsorbed, used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (pseudo-colored red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h at room temperature. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (pseudo-colored blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM for 1hour at room temperature.
