This antibody is specific to ADRA1B.
The alpha-1b adrenoceptor is an Adrenergic Receptor that causes contraction of smooth muscle cells and thereby controls vascular tone, blood pressure, and accelerates the development of atherosclerosis. Decreased alpha-1b adrenoceptor is associated with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). This adrenergic receptor also acts as a proto-oncogene when transfected into cell lines where constitutive activation of the receptor induces neoplastic transformation. The alpha-1b adrenoceptor has been documented in adrenal, aorta, blood, various brain regions, eye, heart, kidney, liver, prostate, spinal cord, and spleen. ESTs have been isolated from kidney (normal and cancer) and lung carcinoma libraries.
