Reproducibility is key to advancing scientific discovery and accelerating scientists’ next breakthrough.
Abcam is leading the way with our range of recombinant antibodies, knockout-validated antibodies and knockout cell lines, all of which support improved reproducibility.
We are also planning to innovate the way in which we present recommended applications and species on our product datasheets, so that only applications & species that have been tested in our own labs, our suppliers or by selected trusted collaborators are covered by our Abpromise™ guarantee.
In preparation for this, we have started to update the applications & species that this product is Abpromise guaranteed for.
We are also updating the applications & species that this product has been “predicted to work with,” however this information is not covered by our Abpromise guarantee.
Applications & species from publications and Abreviews that have not been tested in our own labs or in those of our suppliers are not covered by the Abpromise guarantee.
Please check that this product meets your needs before purchasing.

FunctionReceptor for tyrosine, L-DOPA and dopamine. After binding to L-DOPA, stimulates Ca(2+) influx into the cytoplasm, increases secretion of the neurotrophic factor SERPINF1 and relocalizes beta arrestin at the plasma membrane; this ligand-dependent signaling occurs through a G(q)-mediated pathway in melanocytic cells. Its activity is mediated by G proteins which activate the phosphoinositide signaling pathway. Plays also a role as an intracellular G protein-coupled receptor involved in melanosome biogenesis, organization and transport.
Tissue specificityExpressed at high levels in the retina, including the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE), and in melanocytes. Weak expression is observed in brain and adrenal gland.
Involvement in diseaseAlbinism ocular 1
Nystagmus congenital X-linked 6
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the G-protein coupled receptor OA family.
DomainThe cytoplasmic domain 3 and the C-terminus tail domain contain the lysosomal sorting signals and are necessary and sufficient for intracellular retention and delivery to lysosomal and melanosomal, respectively in melanocytic and non-melanocytic cells.
Cellular localizationMelanosome membrane. Lysosome membrane. Apical cell membrane. Distributed throughout the endo-melanosomal system but most of endogenous protein is localized in unpigmented stage II melanosomes. Its expression on the apical cell membrane is sensitive to tyrosine (PubMed:18828673).
