|Other Names||Rhodopsin, rho, zfo2|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence is selected from aa 62-73 of HUMAN rho|
|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||Visual pigments such as rhodopsin and porphyropsin are light-absorbing molecules that mediate vision. Rhodopsin consists of an apoprotein, opsin, covalently linked to 11-cis-retinal. This receptor is coupled to the activation of phospholipase C. Porphyropsin consists of opsin covalently linked to 11-cis 3,4- didehydroretinal.|
|Cellular Location||Membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein.|
|Tissue Location||Retinal rod photoreceptor cells, predominantly in the outer segments.|
