|Application ||WB, E|
|Calculated MW||48361 Da|
|Antigen Region||365-391 aa|
|Other Names||D(4) dopamine receptor, D(2C) dopamine receptor, Dopamine D4 receptor, DRD4|
|Target/Specificity||This DRD4 antibody is generated from mice immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 365-391 amino acids from the Central region of human DRD4.|
|Format||Mouse monoclonal antibody supplied in crude ascites with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||DRD4 Antibody (Center) (Ascites) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Dopamine receptor responsible for neuronal signaling in the mesolimbic system of the brain, an area of the brain that regulates emotion and complex behavior. Its activity is mediated by G proteins which inhibit adenylyl cyclase. Modulates the circadian rhythm of contrast sensitivity by regulating the rhythmic expression of NPAS2 in the retinal ganglion cells (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein|

This gene encodes the D4 subtype of the dopamine receptor. The D4 subtype is a G-protein coupled receptor which inhibits adenylyl cyclase. It is a target for drugs which treat schizophrenia and Parkinson disease. Mutations in this gene have been associated with various behavioral phenotypes, including autonomic nervous system dysfunction, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, and the personality trait of novelty seeking. This gene contains a polymorphic number (2-10 copies) of tandem 48 nt repeats; the sequence shown contains four repeats.
