  • Function
    This is a receptor for PACAP-27 and PACAP-38. The activity of this receptor is mediated by G proteins which activate adenylyl cyclase. May regulate the release of adrenocorticotropin, luteinizing hormone, growth hormone, prolactin, epinephrine, and catecholamine. May play a role in spermatogenesis and sperm motility. Causes smooth muscle relaxation and secretion in the gastrointestinal tract.
  • Tissue specificity
    Most abundant in the brain, low expression in the lung, liver, thymus, spleen, pancreas and placenta.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the G-protein coupled receptor 2 family.
  • Cellular localization
    Cell membrane.

Thank you for your reply.

Because ab8901 has been validated for use in rat and RIA, it will be guaranteed for your experiments and would not qualify for the testing discount program. I would be happy to manually submit your Abreview and award you the Abpoints, if you could please send it to me? Unfortunately, I did not receive the attachment you tried to send.

While the Abpoints will not be worth a free antibody, they can be redeemed for a value off of your next order or an Amazon.com gift card: https://www.abcam.com/index.html?pageconfig=loyalty_rewards_list

Alternatively, if you submit an image of your results with your Abreview, I can offer you the testing discount program for submitting the image. In that case, I will issue you a different discount code that will be valid for reviewing ab8901. I look forward to processing your Abreview.
