Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab103016 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 0.5 µg/ml. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with citrate buffer pH 6 before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
WB Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 55 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 47 kDa).


  • Function
    This is one of the several different receptors for 5-hydroxytryptamine (serotonin), a biogenic hormone that functions as a neurotransmitter, a hormone, and a mitogen. The activity of this receptor is mediated by G proteins that stimulate adenylate cyclase. It has a high affinity for tricyclic psychotropic drugs.
  • Tissue specificity
    Expressed in several human brain regions, most prominently in the caudate nucleus.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the G-protein coupled receptor 1 family.
  • Cellular localization
    Cell membrane.

  • IHC image of 5HT6 Receptor staining in Mouse Brain formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue section, performed on a Leica Bond™ 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 ab103016, 0.5 µg/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.

    Developed using the ECL technique.

    Performed under reducing conditions.

    Predicted band size: 47 kDa
    Observed band size: 55 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
    Additional bands at: 41 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.

    Exposure time: 30 seconds

    5HT6 Receptor contains a potential glycosylation site (SwissProt) which may explain its migration at a higher molecular weight than predicted.
