  • Product overview

    Abcam’s Prolactin R Rat ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is an in vitro enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the quantitative measurement of rat Prolactin R in cell culture supernatants.

    This assay employs an antibody specific for rat Prolactin R coated on a 96-well plate. Standards and samples are pipetted into the wells and Prolactin R present in a sample is bound to the wells by the immobilized antibody. The wells are washed and biotinylated anti-rat Prolactin R antibody is added. After washing away unbound biotinylated antibody, HRP conjugated streptavidin is pipetted to the wells. The wells are again washed, a TMB substrate solution is added to the wells and color develops in proportion to the amount of Prolactin R bound. The Stop Solution changes the color from blue to yellow, and the intensity of the color is measured at 450 nm.

    We have not been able to detect the endogenous Rat Prolactin R in normal serum with ab113351, only in serum spiked with Rat Prolactin R.

  • Research areas
  • Function
    This is a receptor for the anterior pituitary hormone prolactin (PRL). Isoform 4 is unable to transduce prolactin signaling. Isoform 6 is unable to transduce prolactin signaling.
  • Tissue specificity
    Expressed in breast, placenta, kidney, liver and pancreas.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the type I cytokine receptor family. Type 1 subfamily.
    Contains 2 fibronectin type-III domains.
  • Domain
    The WSXWS motif appears to be necessary for proper protein folding and thereby efficient intracellular transport and cell-surface receptor binding.
    The box 1 motif is required for JAK interaction and/or activation.
  • Cellular localization
    Secreted and Membrane.
  • Information by UniProt
  • Alternative names
    • PRL-R
    • PRLR
    • Prolactin receptor

Customer reviews and Q&As

Thank you for your interest in our Prolactin R Rat ELISA, ab113351. The laboratory that developed the ELISA has not tested it on milk or pituitary samples, but does not expect that there will be any problems. We recommend following the kit protocol sug...

The laboratory has confirmed that this kit will not detect mouse Prolactin R. The rabbit polyclonal capture antibody will, but not the mouse monoclonal detection antibody.

Gracias por contactarnos.

El anticuerpo usado como captura cubriendo la placa procede de cabra, y es policlonal. El otro anticuerpo, el de detección se ha producido en ratón, y es monoclonal.

Espero haberte ayudad...
