Immunohistochemistry analysis of GPR12 was performed on human kidney tissue. To expose target proteins, antigen retrieval was performed by microwaving tissues for 20 minutes in 10mM sodium citrate buffer (pH 6.0). Tissue slides were probed with a GPR12 polyclonal antibody (Product # PA3-004) at a dilution of 1:3000, overnight at 4C in a humidified chamber. Tissues were washed, and detection was performed using an ABC kit composed of biotinylated goat anti-rabbit IgG, peroxidase-conjugated avidin, and 3-amino-9-ethylcarbazole (AEC) substrate in acetate buffer. Tissues were counterstained with hematoxylin and dehydrated to prep for mounting.

IHC (P) analysis shows positive staining of GPR12 in human kidney tissue.
The G-protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) superfamily is comprised of an estimated 600-1,000 members and is the largest known class of molecular targets with proven therapeutic value. GPR12 is an orphan G-protein-coupled receptor which constitutively activates the Gs protein and increases intracellular cAMP. GPR12 can also be activated by sphingosylphosphorylcholine to promote various cellular functions which include proliferation, neurite outgrowth, cell survival and differentiation.
