|Application ||WB, IHC-P, IF, FC, E|
|Calculated MW||49954 Da|
|Antigen Region||343-369 aa|
|Other Names||Alpha-2B adrenergic receptor, Alpha-2 adrenergic receptor subtype C2, Alpha-2B adrenoreceptor, Alpha-2B adrenoceptor, Alpha-2BAR, ADRA2B, ADRA2L1, ADRA2RL1|
|Target/Specificity||This ADRA2B antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 343-369 amino acids from the Central region of human ADRA2B.|
|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||ADRA2B Antibody (Center) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Alpha-2 adrenergic receptors mediate the catecholamine- induced inhibition of adenylate cyclase through the action of G proteins. The rank order of potency for agonists of this receptor is clonidine > norepinephrine > epinephrine = oxymetazoline > dopamine > p-tyramine = phenylephrine > serotonin > p-synephrine / p-octopamine. For antagonists, the rank order is yohimbine > chlorpromazine > phentolamine > mianserine > spiperone > prazosin > alprenolol > propanolol > pindolol.|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein Note=Interaction with RAB26 mediates transport from the Golgi to the cell membrane.|

Alpha-2-adrenergic receptors are members of the G protein-coupled receptor superfamily. They include 3 highly homologous subtypes: alpha2A, alpha2B, and alpha2C. These receptors have a critical role in regulating neurotransmitter release from sympathetic nerves and from adrenergic neurons in the central nervous system. Alpha 2B adrenergic receptor subtype was observed to associate with eIF-2B, a guanine nucleotide exchange protein that functions in regulation of translation. A polymorphic variant of the alpha2B subtype, which lacks 3 glutamic acids from a glutamic acid repeat element, was identified to have decreased G protein-coupled receptor kinase-mediated phosphorylation and desensitization; this polymorphic form is also associated with reduced basal metabolic rate in obese subjects and may therefore contribute to the pathogenesis of obesity. Alpha 2B adrenergic receptor gene contains no introns in either its coding or untranslated sequences.
