Polyclonal Rabbit Affinity Purified B IH
The serotonin receptors, also known as 5-hydroxytryptamine receptors or 5-HT receptors, are a group of G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) and ligand-gated ion channels (LGICs) found in the central and peripheral nervous systems. They mediate both excitatory and inhibitory neurotransmission. The serotonin receptors are activated by the neurotransmitter serotonin, which acts as their natural ligand.
Catalog #S1001-15A
ApplicationsSuitable for use in Western Blot and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.
Recommended DilutionsWestern Blot: Using rat brain extracts of cortex, hypothalamus, midbrain and hindbrain, the antibody specifically labels a single band. Immunolabeling is abolished by pre-adsorption with synthetic rat 5HT transporter (aa579-599).
Immunohistochemistry (indirect IF): 1:200-1:400
Immunohistochemistry (biotin/streptavidin HRP technique): 1:200-1:600 in rat raphe nuclei, hypothalamus, cortex and spinal cord.
Optimal dilution determined by the researcher.
