Polyclonal Rabbit Affinity Purified E B
Dopamine is an endogenous catecholamine that influences many cellular activities, including behavior, hormone synthesis and release, blood pressure and intracellular ion transport. A family of at least 5 Dopamine Receptors (DR) genes, D1-D5, have been identified based upon the amino acid identity, pharmacological specificity and effector responses. DR have been classified into either the D1-like (D1, D1B, and D5) or D2-like (D2, D3, and D4). The two isoforms of D2R, D2 long (D2L) and short (D2S), are encoded by splice variants of a single gene and differ only by the presence of an additional 29aa in the intracellular domain 3 of the D2 long form. It may play a role in the coupling of the receptor to G-proteins. All members of this family have similar structure and contain 7 putative transmembrane domains. A given cell or tissue may express more than one DR. Specific radioligands do not exist that can differentiate between these DR. Therefore, specific antibodies are needed to distinguish, localize, and document changes in DR levels in cells and tissues under various normal and pathological conditions.
Dopamine transporter (DAT) is a plasma membrane transporter for the termination of dopaminergic neurotransmission by its high affinity Na+ and Cl- reuptake of dopamine into presynaptic terminals. This protein is the target of psychomotor stimulants such as amphetamines or cocaine. DAT (human: 620aa; rat/mouse: 619aa glycoprotein) is predicted to contain 12 transmembrane domains with N and C-termini in the cytoplasm.
Catalog #D9020-13
ApplicationsSuitable for use in ELISA and Western Blot. Other applications not tested.
Recommended DilutionWestern Blot: 1-10 ug/ml using ECL
ELISA 0.5-1ug/ml (Coat plates with 50-100ng DAT control peptide/well; See D9020-14).
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
Storage and StabilityMay be stored at 4°C for short-term only. For long-term storage, store at -20°C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20°C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
Clone TypePolyclonal
IsotypeIgG
HostRabbit
SourceRat
Concentration~1mg/ml
FormSupplied as a liquid in 100mM Tris, pH 7.5, 0.2% BSA, 0.05% sodium azide, 40% glycerol.
PurityPurified by immunoaffinity chromatography.
ImmunogenAn 18aa peptide sequence near the NH2-terminus of rat dopamine transporter. This region is presumably from the cytoplasmic domain. A cysteine was added at the NH2 terminus for coupling to KLH.
SpecificityThe selected peptide sequence is 100% identical in mouse, 77% homologous with bovine, monkey and 72% in human DAT sequences. Strongly reacts with mouse and rat and weakly with human and canine.
