  • Primary antibody notes
    Adrenergic receptors (ARs) are members of the 7-transmembrane domain G-protein-coupled receptor superfamily that bind the endogenous catecholamines epinephrine and norepinephrine. Pharmacological, structural, and molecular cloning data indicate significant heterogeneity within this receptor family. Nine receptor subtypes have been identified thus far including three alpha-1 AR subtypes (1A/D, 1B, and 1C), three alpha-2 ARs (2A, 2B, and 2C), and three beta AR subtypes (1, 2, and 3). ARs participate in either the onset or maintenance of several disease states including hypertension, cardiac dysfunction (congestive heart failure, ischemia, arrhythmias), diabetes, glaucoma, depression, and impotence. BARs participate in diverse processes including development, behavior, cardiac function, smooth muscle tone, and metabolism. In gene-knockout experiments, the majority of mice that lack the B1AR gene die prenatally and those that do survive until adulthood display abnormal cardiac function. Other studies have shown that the direct regulation of cardiac B1AR density by thyroid hormones occurs at the transcriptional level and is modulated by the catecholamine sensitive-adenylyl cyclase system. Evidence for the effects of cAMP on B1AR regulation has come from a study of members of the cAMP response element (CRE) modulator (CREM) family of transcription factors in transformed cell lines.

  • Function
    Beta-adrenergic receptors mediate the catecholamine-induced activation of adenylate cyclase through the action of G proteins. This receptor binds epinephrine and norepinephrine with approximately equal affinity.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the G-protein coupled receptor 1 family. Adrenergic receptor subfamily. ADRB1 sub-subfamily.
  • Domain
    The PDZ domain-binding motif mediates competitive interactions with GOPC, MAGI3 and DLG4 and plays a role in subcellular location of the receptor.
  • Post-translational
    Homologous desensitization of the receptor is mediated by its phosphorylation by beta-adrenergic receptor kinase.
  • Cellular localization
    Cell membrane. Localized at the plasma membrane. Found in the Golgi upon GOPC overexpression.

  • All lanes : Anti-beta 1 Adrenergic Receptor antibody (ab3442) at 1/1000 dilution

    All lanes :

    Lysates/proteins at 25 µg per lane.

    All lanes : HRP-conjugated Goat anti-Rabbit at 1/20000 dilution

    Predicted band size: 50 kDa
    Observed band size: 50 kDa
    Additional bands at: 30 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.

    Western blot analysis of ADR-Beta-1 was performed by loading 25ug of various whole cell lysates onto a 4-20% Tris-HCl polyacrylamide gel. Proteins were transferred to a PVDF membrane and blocked with 5% Milk/TBST for at least 1 hour. Membranes were probed with ab3442 at a dilution of 1/1000 overnight at 4°C on a rocking platform. Membranes were washed in TBS-0.1%Tween 20 and probed with a goat anti-rabbit-HRP secondary antibody at a dilution of 1/20,000 for at least one hour. Membranes were washed and chemiluminescent detection performed.
  • ab3442 at 1/100 dilution staining beta 1 Adrenergic Receptor in untreated HeLa cells by Immunocytochemistry/ Immunofluorescence. Formalin fixed cells were permeabilized with 0.1% Triton X-100 in TBS for 15 minutes at room temperature. Cells were then blocked with 5% normal goat serum for 15 minutes at room temperature. Cells were probed with a rabbit polyclonal antibody recognizing ADR-Beta-1, at a dilution of 1/100 for at least 1 hour at room temperature. Cells were washed with PBS and incubated with DyLight 488-conjugated goat-anti-rabbit secondary antibody at a dilution of 1/400 for 30 minutes at room temperature. Nuclei were stained with Hoechst 33342 dye.
  • ab3442 staining the beta 1 Adrenergic Receptor in mouse bone marrow cells by Flow Cytometry. Cells were fixed with paraformaldehyde and permeabilized with 0.5% BSA in 2mM EDTA/PBS. The sample was incubated with the primary antibody (1/100) for 20 minutes at 4°C. An Alexa Fluor® 488-conjugated goat anti-rabbit IgG polyclonal (1/1000) was used as the secondary antibody.
    Gating Strategy: Blood cells.
