Technical Data
S1001-19R
HTR3A (5-hydroxytryptamine Receptor 3A, 5-HT3-A, 5-HT3A, 5-hydroxytryptamine Receptor 3, 5-HT-3, 5-HT3R, Serotonin Receptor 3A, Serotonin-gated Ion Channel Receptor, 5HT3R, HTR3)
Description:
This is one of the several different receptors for 5-hydroxytryptamine (serotonin), a biogenic hormone that functions as a neurotransmitter, a hormone, and a mitogen. This receptor is a ligand-gated ion channel, which when activated causes fast, depolarizing responses in neurons. It is a cation-specific, but otherwise relatively nonselective, ion channel.

Applications:
Suitable for use in ELISA, Immunocytochemistry, Immunofluorescence and Western Blot. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
ELISA: 1:128,000
Western Blot: 0.3-1ug/ml, observed in human colon lysates on ~55kD bands
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

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 at least 12 months. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap.
