Cannabinoid Receptor 1 (extracellular) Antibody

Affinity purified polyclonal antibody

  • WB - Cannabinoid Receptor 1 (extracellular) Antibody AG1300-025
    Western blot analysis of rat brain membrane proteins: 1. Anti-Cannabinoid Receptor 1 (extracellular) antibody (#AG1300), (1:200).
    2. Anti-Cannabinoid Receptor 1 (extracellular) antibody, preincubated with the control peptide antigen.
  • IHC - Cannabinoid Receptor 1 (extracellular) Antibody AG1300-025
    Expression of CB1R in mouse hippocampus Immunohistochemical staining of mouse hippocampus using Anti-Cannabinoid Receptor 1 (extracellular) antibody (#AG1300), (1:100). A. CB1R is detected in pyramidal and infra-pyramidal layers (green). B. Staining of interneurons using mouse anti-parvalbumin (PV) antibody (red). C. Confocal merge of A and B does not indicate the presence of CB1R in GABAergic cells.

Cannabinoids have been used in eastern medicine for many years as pain relievers.1 Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the major psychoactive compound in marijuana and hashish, has been shown to interact with two specific cannabinoid receptors: cannabinoid receptor 1 (CB1 Receptor or CB1R) and cannabinoid receptor 2 (CB2 Receptor or CB2R).2 The cannabinoid receptors can be distinguished by their amino acid sequences, signaling mechanisms, and tissue distributions.2 Both receptors belong to the G-protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) superfamily. CB1R was shown to modulate several Ca2+ and K+ ion channels.2,3 CB1R is primarily expressed in the central nervous system. However, expression of CB1R is also detected in the peripheral terminals, in non-neuronal peripheral tissues such as uterus, testes, spleen, as well as in cells of the immune system.3,4 CB1R is implicated in many cellular functions such as neurotransmitter release, pain relief, cancer, and obesity.5,6 Growth inhibition of tumor cells was demonstrated following mixed CB1R/CB2R agonist treatment in both prostate and non-melanoma skin cancers.5,6 Through their interaction with CB1R, cannabinoid compounds stimulate appetite for sweets and palatable foods in particular, making CB1R an attractive therapeutic target for the treatment of obesity and eating disorders.7 Alomone is pleased to offer a new extracellular antibody directed against the rat CB1 receptor. Anti-Cannabinoid Receptor 1 (extracellular) antibody (#AG1300) can be used in western blot and immunohistochemistry applications, and recognizes CB1R in mouse and rat samples.
