|Application ||WB, E|
|Calculated MW||42687 Da|
|Antigen Region||327-356 aa|
|Other Names||Neuropeptide S receptor, G-protein coupled receptor 154, G-protein coupled receptor PGR14, G-protein coupled receptor for asthma susceptibility, NPSR1, GPR154, GPRA, PGR14|
|Target/Specificity||This NPSR1 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 327-356 amino acids from the C-terminal region of human NPSR1.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is purified through a protein A column, followed by peptide affinity purification.|
|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||NPSR1 Antibody (C-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Synonyms||GPR154, GPRA, PGR14|
|Function||G-protein coupled receptor for neuropeptide S (NPS) (PubMed:16790440). Promotes mobilization of intracellular Ca(2+) stores (PubMed:16790440). Inhibits cell growth in response to NPS binding (PubMed:15947423). Involved in pathogenesis of asthma and other IgE-mediated diseases.|
|Cellular Location||Isoform 1: Cell membrane; Multi- pass membrane protein Isoform 4: Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein Isoform 5: Cytoplasm Isoform 7: Cytoplasm|
|Tissue Location||Isoform 4 is ubiquitous; it is detected in glandular epithelia of bronchus, stomach, small intestine, colon, uterus, esophagus, spleen, kidney, pancreas, prostate and breast Isoform 1 is detected in uterus, colon and prostate, and in the smooth muscle cell layer in bronchial and arterial walls (at protein level) (PubMed:15947423). Isoform 1 is predominantly expressed in smooth muscle. Isoform 4 is predominantly expressed in epithelial cells. In bronchial biopsies, it is expressed in smooth muscle cells of asthma patients, but not in control patients; whereas in epithelial cells, its expression is consistently stronger in asthma patients|

NPSR1 is a member of the G protein-coupled receptor 1 family and encodes a plasma membrane protein. Increased expression of this gene in ciliated cells of the respiratory epithelium and in bronchial smooth muscle cells is associated with asthma.
