Technical Data
APJ Receptor (APLNR, Apelin receptor, AGTRL1, angiotensin II receptor-like 1, Angiotensin receptor-like 1, Apelin receptor, APJ, APJR, FLJ90771, G-protein coupled receptor APJ, HG11, MGC45246)
The apelin receptor (APJ receptor) has been identified as the endogenous receptor for the peptide apelin. Previous to the identification of apelin, APJ was considered an orphan G protein coupled receptor. The apelin receptor (both by immunohistochemistry and in situ) has been localized to the CNS and is currently thought to play a role in stress response, feeding behavior and haemodynamic homeostasis. However, because of a broad distribution the apelin receptor and its endogenous ligand may be involved in a wide range of biological process yet to be determined.

Suitable for use in Immunohistochemistry and Immunocytochemistry. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Immunohistochemistry: 5-20ug/ml
Immunocytochemistry: 0.1-0.5ug/ml
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. For long-term storage and to avoid repeated freezing and thawing, add sterile 40-50% glycerol, aliquot and store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20C. 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.
