|Application ||WB, IHC-P|
|Reactivity||Human, Rabbit, Monkey, Pig, Horse, Dog|
|Dilution||IHC-P (4 µg/ml)|
|Other Names||Gastrin-releasing peptide receptor, GRP-R, GRP-preferring bombesin receptor, GRPR|
|Target/Specificity||Human GRPR. BLAST analysis of the peptide immunogen showed no homology with other human proteins.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||Long term: -70°C; Short term: +4°C|
|Precautions||GRPR Antibody (Extracellular Domain) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Receptor for gastrin-releasing peptide (GRP) (PubMed:1655761). Signals via association with G proteins that activate a phosphatidylinositol-calcium second messenger system, resulting in Akt phosphorylation. Contributes to the regulation of food intake. Contributes to the perception of prurient stimuli and transmission of itch signals in the spinal cord that promote scratching behavior, but does not play a role in the perception of pain. Contributes primarily to nonhistaminergic itch sensation. Contributes to long-term fear memory, but not normal spatial memory (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Highly expressed in pancreas. Also expressed in stomach, adrenal cortex and brain|
