Technical Data
Serotonin Receptor 1A
Serotonin Receptor 1A, also known as 5-hydroxytryptamine receptor 1A, is a member of the G protein-coupled receptor family. Serotonin Receptor 1A has been found to be expressed highly in the septum and hippocampus. Serotonin Receptor 1A seems to have an inhibitory effect on Ca2+ channels, via N-channels and L-channels. The receptor actuates voltage-sensitive slowing using the N-channels and actuates steady state inhibition using the L-channels.

Suitable for use in Western Blot and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications have not been tested.

Recommended Dilutions:
Western Blot: 0.5ug/ml detects Serotonin Receptor 1A on 10ug of rat brain tissue lysate. Band is observed at ~40kD. Calculated MW is 46kD.
Immunohistochemistry (Paraffin): 1:400 detects Serotonin Receptor 1A in normal human brain tissue.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Positive Control:
Rat brain tissue lysate

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for 12 months after receipt. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap.
