PA1-048 detects alpha-2A adrenergic receptor (A2AAR) from human, rat and mouse tissues.
PA1-048 has been successfully used in Western blot and immunohistochemistry procedures. By Western blot, this antibody detects an ~45 kDa protein representing A2AAR from mouse kidney membrane preparations.
The PA1-048 immunogen is a synthetic peptide corressponding to residues R(218) I Y Q I A K R R T R V P P S R R G(235) of the 3rd intracellular loop of human A2AAR. This sequence is completely conserved between human, mouse, rat, and porcine A2AAR.
Alpha-2-adrenergic receptors (ADRA2A) are members of the G protein-coupled receptor superfamily. They include 3 highly homologous subtypes: alpha2A, alpha2B, and alpha2C. ADRA2A mediate the catecholamine-induced inhibition of adenylate cyclase through the action of G protein. These receptors have a critical role in regulating neurotransmitter release from sympathetic nerves and from adrenergic neurons in the central nervous system.
