|Application ||FC, IHC-P, WB, E|
|Calculated MW||43901 Da|
|Antigen Region||365-391 aa|
|Other Names||D(4) dopamine receptor, D(2C) dopamine receptor, Dopamine D4 receptor, DRD4|
|Target/Specificity||This DRD4 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 365-391 amino acids from the Central region of human DRD4.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is purified through a protein A column, followed by peptide affinity purification.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||DRD4 Antibody (Center) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Dopamine receptor responsible for neuronal signaling in the mesolimbic system of the brain, an area of the brain that regulates emotion and complex behavior. Activated by dopamine, but also by epinephrine and norepinephrine, and by numerous synthetic agonists and drugs (PubMed:9003072, PubMed:16423344, PubMed:27659709, PubMed:29051383). Agonist binding triggers signaling via G proteins that inhibit adenylyl cyclase (PubMed:7512953, PubMed:7643093, PubMed:16423344, PubMed:27659709, PubMed:29051383). Modulates the circadian rhythm of contrast sensitivity by regulating the rhythmic expression of NPAS2 in the retinal ganglion cells (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Highly expressed in retina. Detected at much lower levels in brain, in amygdala, thalamus, hypothalamus, cerebellum and pituitary.|
Provided below are standard protocols that you may find useful for product applications.
DRD4 is the D4 subtype of the dopamine receptor. The D4 subtype is a G-protein coupled receptor which inhibits adenylyl cyclase. It is a target for drugs which treat schizophrenia and Parkinson disease.
