P2X7 Receptor Antibody

Affinity purified polyclonal antibody

  • WB - P2X7 Receptor   Antibody AG1074-025
    Western blot analysis of rat hippocampus lysates:
    1. Anti-P2X7 Receptor antibody (#AG1074), (1:200).
    2. Anti-P2X7 Receptor antibody, preincubated with the control peptide antigen.
  • IHC - P2X7 Receptor   Antibody AG1074-025
    Expression of P2X7 Receptor in rat pancreas Immunohistochemical staining of rat paraffin-embedded endocrine and exocrine pancreas sections using Anti-P2X7 Receptor antibody (#AG1074), (1:50), followed by goat anti-rabbit-AlexaFluor-555-secondary antibody (1:500), (red). Staining is highly specific for endocrine cells of the Isle of Langerhans. Hoechst 33342 is used as the counterstain (blue).

The P2X7 receptor is a member of the ionotropic P2X receptor family that is activated by ATP. To date, this family is composed of seven receptor subtypes, named P2X1-P2X7, all of which have been cloned.   The various P2X receptors show distinct expression patterns. P2X1-6 receptors have been found in the central and peripheral nervous system, while the P2X7 receptor is found in cells of the immune system, particularly in antigen-presenting cells, and microglia.   The P2X7 receptor mediates the release of proinflamatory cytokines and stimulation of transcription factors and may also play an important role in apoptosis.1-3
