PA3-109 detects Somatostatin Receptor 2A in human and rat samples.
PA3-109 has been used successfully in Western blot, immunocytochemistry, and immunohistochemistry procedures. In Western blot analysis of SSTR2A transfected HEK-293 cells this antibody detects a ~62-72 kDa protein representing SSTR2A.
The PA3-109 immunogen is a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues E(355) T Q R T L L N G D L Q T S I(369) of human SSTR2A.
Somatostatin Receptor Type 2 (SST2) expression has been reported in adrenal, aorta, brain, breast, eye, gastrointestinal tract, pancreas, prostate, spinal cord, and thyroid. ESTs have been isolated from brain, eye, head/neck, kidney, lymph node, pineal, and prostate libraries.
G-protein Coupled Receptors (GPCRs) comprise one of the largest families of signaling molecules with more than a thousand members currently predicted to exist. All GPCRs share a structural motif consisting of seven membrane-spanning helices, and exist in both active and inactive forms. An array of activating ligands participate in the conformation of GPCRs which leads to signaling via G-proteins and downstream effectors. Ongoing studies have also shown the vast series of reactions which participate in the negative regulation of GPCRs. This "turn-off" activity has tremendous implications for the physiological action of the cell, and continues to drive pharmacological research for new drug candidates. Two blockbuster drugs which have been developed as GPCR-targeted pharmaceuticals are Zyprexa (Eli Lilly) and Claritin (Schering-Plough) which have multi-billion dollar shares of the mental health and allergy markets, respectively.
