|Application ||WB, IHC-P, E|
|Calculated MW||67114 Da|
|Antigen Region||217-246 aa|
|Other Names||Prosaposin receptor GPR37, Endothelin B receptor-like protein 1, ETBR-LP-1, G-protein coupled receptor 37, Parkin-associated endothelin receptor-like receptor, PAELR, GPR37|
|Target/Specificity||This Pael-R (GPR37) antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 217-246 amino acids from the C-terminal region of human Pael-R (GPR37).|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is prepared by Saturated Ammonium Sulfate (SAS) precipitation followed by dialysis against PBS.|
|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||Pael-R (GPR37) Antibody (C-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Receptor for the neuroprotective and glioprotective factor prosaposin. Ligand binding induces endocytosis, followed by an ERK phosphorylation cascade.|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in brain and spinal cord, and at lower levels in testis, placenta and liver, but no detectable expression observed in any other tissue. When overexpressed in cells, tends to become insoluble and unfolded. Accumulation of the unfolded protein may lead to dopaminergic neuronal death in juvenile Parkinson disease (PDJ).|

Parkinson is the second most common neurodegenerative disease after Alzheimers. About 1 percent of people over the age of 65 and 3 percent of people over the age of 75 are affected by the disease. The mutation is the most common cause of Parkinson disease identified to date. The function of Park2 is not well-known; however, it may play a role in the ubiquitin-mediated proteolytic pathway. Mutations in this gene are known to cause autosomal recessive juvenile parkinsonism. Alternative splicing of this gene produces three known products of undetermined function. Panneuronal expression of Parkin substrate Pael-R causes age-dependent selective degeneration of Drosophila dopaminergic (DA) neurons; coexpression of Parkin degrades Pael-R and suppresses its toxicity.
