Back to top
The human insulin receptor is a heterotetrameric membrane glycoprotein consisting of disulfide-linked subunits in a Β-α-α-Β configuration. The Β-subunit (95kDa) possesses a single transmembrane domain, whereas the α-subunit (135kDa) is completely extracellular.

Host Species: Mouse

Clone: 83-14

Isotype: IgG2a/κ

Species Reactivity: Human. Weakly with Cow, Pig and Sheep. Does not react with rabbit, mouse and rat. Others not known.

Epitope: aa 469-592 (exon 7/8)

Immunogen: IM-9 lymphocytes followed by purified insulin receptor

Molecular Weight: 135kDa

Positive Control: IM-9 lymphocyte cells, Placenta

Cellular Localization: Membrane Ab-1 inhibits insulin binding and mimics insulin action. It is excellent for immunoprecipitation of alpha-subunit of IR.

Recommended for:

  • Immunoprecipitation
  • Insulin-like Agonist
  • Inhibits (∽80%) Insulin Binding (10nM)
  • Tyrosine Kinase Assay (Ab-mediated capture on microplates)
