|Other Names||Vasopressin V1b receptor, V1bR, AVPR V1b, AVPR V3, Antidiuretic hormone receptor 1b, Vasopressin V3 receptor, AVPR1B, AVPR3, VPR3|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP14050b was selected from the C-term region of AVPR1B. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Receptor for arginine vasopressin. The activity of this receptor is mediated by G proteins which activate a phosphatidyl- inositol-calcium second messenger system.|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein.|

The protein encoded by this gene acts as receptor forarginine vasopressin. This receptor belongs to the subfamily ofG-protein coupled receptors which includes AVPR1A, V2R and OXTreceptors. Its activity is mediated by G proteins which stimulate aphosphatidylinositol-calcium second messenger system. The receptoris primarily located in the anterior pituitary, where it stimulatesACTH release. It is expressed at high levels in ACTH-secretingpituitary adenomas as well as in bronchial carcinoids responsiblefor the ectopic ACTH syndrome. A spliced antisense transcript ofthis gene has been reported but its function is not known.
