|Application ||WB, IHC-P, FC, E|
|Other Accession||P97639, Q8JZL2, NP_005288.3|
|Calculated MW||45963 Da|
|Antigen Region||396-422 aa|
|Other Names||Melanin-concentrating hormone receptor 1, MCH receptor 1, MCH-R1, MCHR-1, G-protein coupled receptor 24, MCH-1R, MCH1R, MCHR, SLC-1, Somatostatin receptor-like protein, MCHR1, GPR24, SLC1|
|Target/Specificity||This MCHR1 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 396-422 amino acids from the C-terminal region of human MCHR1.|
|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||MCHR1 Antibody (C-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Receptor for melanin-concentrating hormone, coupled to both G proteins that inhibit adenylyl cyclase and G proteins that activate phosphoinositide hydrolysis.|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein.|
|Tissue Location||Highest level in brain, particularly in the frontal cortex and hypothalamus, lower levels in the liver and heart|

The protein encoded by this gene, a member of the G protein-coupled receptor family 1, is an integral plasma membrane protein which binds melanin-concentrating hormone. The encoded protein can inhibit cAMP accumulation and stimulate intracellular calcium flux, and is probably involved in the neuronal regulation of food consumption. Although structurally similar to somatostatin receptors, this protein does not seem to bind somatostatin.
