|Other Accession||NM_000953, NP_000944|
|Alias Symbol||AS1, ASRT1, DP, DP1, MGC49004, PTGDR1|
|Other Names||Prostaglandin D2 receptor, PGD receptor, PGD2 receptor, Prostanoid DP receptor, PTGDR|
|Format||Liquid. Purified antibody supplied in 1x PBS buffer with 0.09% (w/v) sodium azide and 2% sucrose.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||Add 50 ul of distilled water. Final anti-PTGDR antibody concentration is 1 mg/ml in PBS buffer with 2% sucrose. For longer periods of storage, store at 20°C. Avoid repeat freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||PTGDR antibody - C-terminal region is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Receptor for prostaglandin D2 (PGD2). The activity of this receptor is mainly mediated by G(s) proteins that stimulate adenylate cyclase, resulting in an elevation of intracellular cAMP. A mobilization of calcium is also observed, but without formation of inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate (By similarity). Involved in PLA2G3- dependent maturation of mast cells. PLA2G3 is secreted by immature mast cells and acts on nearby fibroblasts upstream to PTDGS to synthesize PGD2, which in turn promotes mast cell maturation and degranulation via PTGDR (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in retinal choroid, ciliary epithelium, longitudinal and circular ciliary muscles, iris, small intestine and platelet membranes.|
