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 with tyrosine kinase acivity, whereas the α-subunit (135kDa) is completely extracellular.

Host Species: Mouse

Clone: CT-1

Isotype: IgG1/κ

Species Reactivity: Human, Mouse and Rat.

Epitope: aa-GRVLTLPRS- within the C-terminus

Immunogen: A 15-mer synthetic peptide corresponding to aa Tyr-KKNGRILTLPRSNPS from the C-terminal of human insulin receptor β-subunit

Molecular Weight: 95kDa

Positive Control: IM-9 lymphocyte cells

Cellular Localization: Membrane Ab-5 reacts with autophosphorylated and unoccupied receptors as well as the receptor-insulin complex. Ab-5 does not affect insulin-stimulated autophosphorylation.

Recommended for:

  • Immunoprecipitation
  • Affinity Purification (With peptide elution)
  • ELISA (As capture antibody only)
  • Tyrosine Kinase Assay (Ab-mediated capture on microplates)
