Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab79714 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
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.

  • 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.
