|Other Names||Atrial natriuretic peptide receptor 1, Atrial natriuretic peptide receptor type A, ANP-A, ANPR-A, NPR-A, Guanylate cyclase A, GC-A, NPR1, ANPRA|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP8111a was selected from the N-term region of human ANPA . A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Format||The synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml deionized 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 the atrial natriuretic peptide NPPA/ANP and the brain natriuretic peptide NPPB/BNP which are potent vasoactive hormones playing a key role in cardiovascular homeostasis. Has guanylate cyclase activity upon binding of the ligand.|
|Cellular Location||Membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein|
Provided below are standard protocols that you may find useful for product applications.
ANPA is a receptor for atrial natriuretic peptide. It exhibits guanylate cyclase activity on binding of ANF. There seem to be at least three ANP receptors: two with guanylate cyclase activity (ANPA and ANPB) and one (ANPC) which is probably responsible for the clearance of ANP from the circulation without a role in signal transduction. This Type I membrane protein belongs to the adenylyl cyclase class-4/guanylyl cyclase family and contains 1 protein kinase-like domain.
