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

Application Abreviews Notes
WB Use a concentration of 1 - 5 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 42 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 45 kDa).

We recommend using 1% BSA as a blocking agent for western blot.

ICC/IF Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml.


  • Function

    Receptor for adenosine. The activity of this receptor is mediated by G proteins which activate adenylyl cyclase.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the G-protein coupled receptor 1 family.
  • Domain

    The cytoplasmic C-terminal domain is necessary for targeting the non-ubiquitinated form of this protein to the cell surface.
  • Post-translational

    Ubiquitinated. Deubiquitinated by USP4; leading to stabilization and expression at the cell surface.
  • Cellular localization

    Cell membrane.
  • Information by UniProt

  • ICC/IF image of ab79714 stained SKNSH cells. The cells were 100% methanol fixed (5 min) then permeabilised using 0.1% PBS-Triton and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to further permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody ab79714 at 5µg/ml overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (pseudo-colored green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti- mouse (ab150117) 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.

Thank you for that reply.

Kate is currently away from the office but I will try to help as best I can with your enquiry. I have checked the two secondary antibodies intended to be used and they seem like they should perform fine with the primary antibodies. As Kate has indicated, I would be happy to provide the alternative antibody ab101678 if your customer would like.

Could you please just confirm I have the correct order number:

Then I will arrange for the replacement to be sent to you as soon as possible.

I look forward to receiving your reply.

Thank you for your message and for providing this further information.

I am sorry to hear the suggestions made have not improved the results on this occasion. I appreciate the time you have spent on these experiments.

Before proceeding, could you confirm the secondary antibody used will detect mouse IgG2a isotype? What is the supplier and product number?

If ths antibody is not working with the correct secondary, I would be pleased to arrange an alternative replacement as requested.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you for your message and for kindly confirming these details.

I look forward to hearing from you with the results from the samples lysed in RIPA. Please do not hesitate to let me know how you get on. If this still does not work with RIPA, I'll be pleased to arrange a free of charge replacement or credit note.

I hope this will be helpful.

Thank you for taking the time to complete our questionnaire and contact us. I am sorry to hear you have had difficulty obtaining satisfactory results from this antibody.

The details you have kindly provided will enable us to investigate this case for you and this is also helpful in our records for monitoring of quality.

I would like to reassure you that ab79714 is tested and covered by our 6 month guarantee for use in WB and human samples. In the event that a product is not functioning in the applications cited on the product data sheet, we will be pleased to provide a credit note or free of charge replacement.

Reviewing this case, I would like to offer some suggestions to help optimize the results. I would also appreciate if you can confirm some further details:

1. I notice the primary antbody ab79714 is a mouse monoclonal IgG2a antibody. The secondary antibody mentioned on the form is goat anti rabbit, which will not detect the mouse primary. I can suggest to use a secondary antibody which is anti mouse IgG, or anti mouse IgG2a.

2. I can recommend to try RIPA lysis buffer to prepare the samples. This may provide amore suitable protein preparation.

3. What were the results from the loading control (GAPDH and b actin)?

I hope this information is helpful, thank you for your cooperation. Should the suggestions not improve the results, please do not hesitate to contact me again with the further requested details.
