The nucleotide receptor P2Y6 binds UDP, and is a member of the G-protein coupled receptor superfamily.1,3 P2Y6 agonists induce an inositol phosphate/Ca2+ response that is insensitive to pertussis toxin inhibition. P2Y6 is coupled to phospholipase C via Gq, and is also coupled to inhibition of N-type Ca2+ and M-type K+ channels.1,2 P2Y6 mRNA is expressed in various rat tissues, including lung, stomach, intestine, spleen, heart, and aorta. P2Y6 was reported to mediate contractions in human cerebral arteries.4 Abgent is please to offer a highly specific antibody directed against the C-terminus domain of the rat P2Y6 receptor. Anti-P2Y6 Receptor antibody (#AG1400) can be used in western blot analysis, indirect flow cytometry, immunoprecipitation, immunocytochemistry and immunohistochemistry. It has been designed to recognize P2Y6 from rat, mouse and human samples.
