P2Y4 Receptor Antibody

Affinity purified polyclonal antibody

  • WB - P2Y4 Receptor Antibody AG1072-050
    Western blot analysis of rat brain membranes: 1. Anti-P2Y4 Receptor antibody (#AG1072), (1:300).
    2. Anti-P2Y4 Receptor antibody, preincubated with the control peptide antigen.
  • IHC - P2Y4 Receptor Antibody AG1072-050
    Expression of P2Y4 receptor in rat cerebellum Immunohistochemical staining of rat cerebellum using Anti-P2Y4 Receptor antibody (#AG1072). A. P2Y4 receptor (red) appears in astrocytic processes (arrows). B. In contrast, P2Y4 receptor does not appear in Purkinje neuronal dendrites stained for calbindin D28k (green) in the same brain section. This demonstrates the restriction of P2Y4 receptor to astrocytic fibers.

The P2Y receptors belong to the G-protein coupled receptors superfamily.  P2Y receptors mediate the actions of the extracellular nucleotides (ATP, ADP, UTP and UDP) and regulate several physiologic responses, among them, cardiac function, platelet aggregation and SMC proliferation.1 The mammalian P2Y family currently includes eight functional receptors; P2Y1, P2Y2, P2Y4, P2Y6, P2Y11, P2Y12, P2Y13, and the UDP-glucose receptor, now renamed P2Y14.2-4 The P2Y4-receptor is highly expressed in the placenta and with lower levels at lung and vascular smooth muscle.5 The human P2Y4 receptor is highly selective to UTP while rat P2Y4 receptor is equally activated by both UTP and ATP and also by other triphosphate nucleotides such as Ap4A.5 Recently it has been shown that P2Y4 receptor is involved in differentiation and cell death of human neuroblastoma SH-SY5Y cells.6 Abgent is pleased to offer a highly specific antibody directed against the C terminus domain of the rat P2Y4 receptor. Anti-P2Y4 Receptor antibody (#AG1072) can be used in western blot analysis, immunoprecipitation, indirect flow cytometry, immunocytochemistry and immunohistochemistry, and recognizes P2Y4 in rat samples.
