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

Application Abreviews Notes
WB 1/10000 - 1/50000. Detects a band of approximately 52 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 51 kDa).
IP 1/10 - 1/100.
Flow Cyt 1/1000 - 1/10000.

ab172730 - Rabbit monoclonal IgG, is suitable for use as an isotype control with this antibody.


ICC/IF 1/250 - 1/500.
  • Application notes
    Is unsuitable for IHC-P.
  • Target

    • Function

      Receptor for neuropeptide Y and peptide YY. The activity of this receptor is mediated by G proteins that inhibit adenylate cyclase activity. Seems to be associated with food intake. Could be involved in feeding disorders.
    • Tissue specificity

      Brain; hypothalamus.
    • Sequence similarities

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

      Cell membrane.

    • Immunofluorescent staining of BxPC3 cells labelling NPY5R with ab133757 at 1/250.

    • Immunofluorescent staining of U87 MG cells labelling NPY5R with ab133757 at 1/250.

    • Overlay histogram showing SHSY-5Y cells stained with ab133757 (red line). The cells were fixed with 80% methanol (5 min) and incubated in 1x PBS / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine to block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab133757, 1/10000 dilution) for 30 min at 22°C. The secondary antibody used was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H&L) (ab150077) at 1/2000 dilution for 30 min at 22°C. Isotype control antibody (black line) was rabbit IgG (monoclonal) (0.1μg/1x106 cells) used under the same conditions. Unlabelled sample (blue line) was also used as a control. Acquisition of >5,000 events were collected using a 20mW Argon ion laser (488nm) and 525/30 bandpass filter. This antibody gave a positive result in 4% paraformaldehyde (10 min) fixed SHSY-5Y cells used under the same conditions. Please note that Abcam do not have any data for use of this antibody on non-fixed cells. We welcome any customer feedback.
