Application Abreviews Notes
WB 1/1000 - 1/10000. Predicted molecular weight: 39 kDa.
IHC-P 1/50 - 1/1000. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
  • Application notes
    Is unsuitable for ICC or IP.
  • Target

    • Function
      Photoreceptor required for image-forming vision at low light intensity. Required for photoreceptor cell viability after birth. Light-induced isomerization of 11-cis to all-trans retinal triggers a conformational change leading to G-protein activation and release of all-trans retinal.
    • Tissue specificity
      Rod shaped photoreceptor cells which mediates vision in dim light.
    • Involvement in disease
      Retinitis pigmentosa 4
      Night blindness, congenital stationary, autosomal dominant 1
    • Sequence similarities
      Belongs to the G-protein coupled receptor 1 family. Opsin subfamily.
    • Post-translational
      Phosphorylated on some or all of the serine and threonine residues present in the C-terminal region.
      Contains one covalently linked retinal chromophore.
    • Cellular localization
      Membrane. Synthesized in the inner segment (IS) of rod photoreceptor cells before vectorial transport to the rod outer segment (OS) photosensory cilia.
