PA1-748 detects vanilloid receptor 1 (VR1) from human bladder and skin.
PA1-748 has been successfully used in immunofluorescence and immunohistochemistry procedures. Immunohistochemical staining of VR1 in human glabrous skin using this antibody results in the staining of epidermal and dermal cells, as well as free nerve fibers and Merkel cells. Immunofluorescent staining of VR1 in human prostatic urethra using PA1-748 results in fibrous staining within the epithelial cells.
The PA1-748 immunogen is a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues T(7) D L G A A A D P L Q K D T C(21) of human VR1. PA1-748 immunizing peptide (Cat. # PEP-202) is available for use in neutralization and control experiments.
Vanilloid receptor 1 (VR1), also known as capsaicin receptor, responds to both capsaicin, the pungent ingredient in hot peppers, and thermal stimuli within the noxious temperature range. This receptor is structurally related to the TRP family of ion channels and is predicted to contain 6 trans-membrane domains, a P-loop membrane domain and 3 ankyrin repeat domains. VR1 is highly permeable to divalent cations, including calcium and magnesium, as well as the monovalent cations sodium and potassium. Expression of VR1 appears to be limited to neurons within the sensory ganglia.
