|Other Accession||NP_058640.1, 50832|
|Calculated MW||33841 Da|
|Other Names||Taste receptor type 2 member 4, T2R4, TAS2R4|
|Format||0.5 mg/ml in Tris saline, 0.02% sodium azide, pH7.3 with 0.5% bovine serum albumin|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||TAS2R4 (aa157-171) Antibody (internal region) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Gustducin-coupled receptor for denatonium and N(6)- propyl-2-thiouracil implicated in the perception of bitter compounds in the oral cavity and the gastrointestinal tract. Signals through PLCB2 and the calcium-regulated cation channel TRPM5. In airway epithelial cells, binding of denatonium increases the intracellular calcium ion concentration and stimulates ciliary beat frequency.|
|Cellular Location||Membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. Cell projection, cilium membrane. Note=In airway epithelial cells, localizes to motile cilia|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in subsets of taste receptor cells of the tongue and palate epithelium and exclusively in gustducin- positive cells. Expressed on airway ciliated epithelium|
