|Other Accession||NP_004769, 153791424|
|Calculated MW||Predicted: 43 kDa|
|Application Notes||PTGDR2 antibody can be used for detection of PTGDR2 by Western blot at 0.5 - 1 µg/mL.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||PTGDR2 antibody can be stored at 4℃ for three months and -20℃, stable for up to one year.|
|Precautions||PTGDR2 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Synonyms||CRTH2, DL1R, GPR44|
|Function||Receptor for prostaglandin D2 (PGD2). Coupled to the G(i)-protein. Receptor activation may result in pertussis toxin- sensitive decreases in cAMP levels and Ca(2+) mobilization. PI3K signaling is also implicated in mediating PTGDR2 effects. PGD2 induced receptor internalization. CRTH2 internalization can be regulated by diverse kinases such as, PKC, PKA, GRK2, GPRK5/GRK5 and GRK6. Receptor activation is responsible, at least in part, in immune regulation and allergic/inflammation responses.|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. Note=Internalized receptors colocalized with RAB11A.|
|Tissue Location||Widespread expression. High expression in stomach, small intestine, heart and thymus. Intermediate expression in colon, spinal cord and peripheral blood and low expression in brain, skeletal muscle and spleen. Expressed also on Th2- and Tc2- type cells, eosinophils and basophils|

PTGDR2 Antibody: The prostaglandin D2 receptor 2 (PTGDR2), also known as CRTH2, is expressed on Th2 cells and eosinophils and mediates chemotaxis of these cells to PGD2 and is thus thought to be a key receptor mediating eosinophil and Th2 recruitment during allergic responses. However, PTGDR2-null mice showed enhanced eosinophil recruitment into the lung consistent with observations that the PTGDR2-null mice produced significantly higher amounts of interleukin-5 (IL-5) and IL-3. This suggests that PTGDR2 plays a nonredundant role in restricting eosinophilia and allergic response in vivo.
