|Application ||WB, E|
|Other Accession||P48442, Q9QY96, P35384, NP_000379.2|
|Calculated MW||120674 Da|
|Antigen Region||260-287 aa|
|Other Names||Extracellular calcium-sensing receptor, CaSR, Parathyroid cell calcium-sensing receptor 1, PCaR1, CASR, GPRC2A, PCAR1|
|Target/Specificity||This CASR antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 260-287 amino acids from the Central region of human CASR.|
|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||CASR Antibody (Center) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Senses changes in the extracellular concentration of calcium ions. The activity of this receptor is mediated by a G- protein that activates a phosphatidylinositol-calcium second messenger system.|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in the temporal lobe, frontal lobe, parietal lobe, hippocampus, and cerebellum. Also found in kidney, lung, liver, heart, skeletal muscle, placenta|

The protein encoded by this gene is a G protein-coupled receptor that is expressed in the parathyroid hormone (PTH)-producing chief cells of the parathyroid gland, and the cells lining the kidney tubule. It senses small changes in circulating calcium concentration and couples this information to intracellular signaling pathways that modify PTH secretion or renal cation handling, thus this protein plays an essential role in maintaining mineral ion homeostasis. Mutations in this gene cause familial hypocalciuric hypercalcemia, familial, isolated hypoparathyroidism, and neonatal severe primary hyperparathyroidism. [provided by RefSeq].
