Application Abreviews Notes
  • Application notes
    WB: Use at a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 65 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 60 kDa).
    Not yet tested in other applications.
    Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
  • Target

    • Function

      This is a receptor for calcitonin. The activity of this receptor is mediated by G proteins which activate adenylyl cyclase. The calcitonin receptor is thought to couple to the heterotrimeric guanosine triphosphate-binding protein that is sensitive to cholera toxin.
    • Sequence similarities

      Belongs to the G-protein coupled receptor 2 family.
    • Cellular localization

      Cell membrane.

      Predicted band size: 60 kDa
      Observed band size: 65 kDa
      why is the actual band size different from the predicted?
      Additional bands at: 45 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.

      Exposure time: 5 minutes

      Rat Calcitonin receptor precursor has a number of potential glycosylation sites which may affect the migration of the protein (SwissProt data), explaining the bands seen around 65 kDa.
