|Calculated MW||71500 Da|
|Positive Control||Western Blot: Recombinant protein|
|Application & Usage||Western blot: 1-4 µg/ml.|
|Other Names||GHR, GHBP, GH receptor, Growth hormone binding protein, Somatotropin receptor|
|Formulation||100 µg or 30 µg (0.5 mg/ml) of antibody in PBS pH 7.2 containing 0.01 % BSA, 0.01 % thimerosal, and 50 % glycerol.|
|Handling||The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||-20 °C|
|Precautions||GHBP Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Receptor for pituitary gland growth hormone involved in regulating postnatal body growth. On ligand binding, couples to the JAK2/STAT5 pathway (By similarity). Isoform 2 up-regulates the production of GHBP and acts as a negative inhibitor of GH signaling.|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein. Note=On growth hormone binding, GHR is ubiquitinated, internalized, down-regulated and transported into a degradative or non-degradative pathway. Growth hormone-binding protein: Secreted. Note=Complexed to a substantial fraction of circulating GH|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in various tissues with high expression in liver and skeletal muscle. Isoform 4 is predominantly expressed in kidney, bladder, adrenal gland and brain stem. Isoform 1 expression in placenta is predominant in chorion and decidua. Isoform 4 is highly expressed in placental villi. Isoform 2 is expressed in lung, stomach and muscle. Low levels in liver|

GHBP is a transmembrane receptor for growth hormone. Binding of growth hormone to the receptor leads to receptor dimerization and the activation of an intra- and intercellular signal transduction pathway leading to growth. A common alternate allele of this gene, called GHRd3, lacks exon three and has been well-characterized. Mutations in this gene have been associated with Laron syndrome, also known as the growth hormone insensitivity syndrome (GHIS), a disorder characterized by short stature. Human Recombinant GHBP expressed from E. coli is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 237 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 30.3 kDa.
