GeneBLAzer™ PTGDR-CRE-bla CHO-K1 cells contain the human Prostanoid (PTGDR) Receptor stably integrated into the CellSensor™ CRE-bla CHO-K1 cell line. CellSensor™ CRE-bla CHO-K1 cells (Cat. no. K1535) contain a beta-lactamase reporter gene under control of the Cyclic AMP Response Element (CRE) response element.
The GeneBLAzer™ PTGDR-CRE-bla CHO-K1cells are functionally validated for Z' and EC50 concentrations of Prostaglandin D2. In addition, GeneBLAzer™ PTGDR-CRE-bla CHO-K1 cells have been tested for assay performance under variable conditions. These data are found in the Validation & Assay Performance Summary.
The PTGDR receptor also known as DP, is a Gs-coupled receptor which activates adenylate cyclase. PTGDR receptors are located in vascular smooth muscle cells and blood platelets, and are also believed to be expressed in the brain, where they may be involved in the regulation of sleep. In addition, knockout studies in mice suggest that PTGDR may be involved in allergic and asthmatic responses. Potent agonists and antagonists for PTGDR have been identified.
