Rabbit anti Rat G Protein b5-D1Catalog number: X1594P
The G beta5 protein is a G protein subunit present predominantly in the central nervous system. This protein appears to be expressed in two forms, one found in the brain (39 kDa) and one found in the retina (44 kDa). It has also been found that Gb5 associates tightly with RGS7, a member of the superfamily of negative regulators of G protein signaling. These complexes have been localized to most regions of the brain, whereas G 1-4 exhibit no observable colocalization with RGS7, despite their widespread codistribution throughout similar neuronal networks.
Rabbits were immunized with a unique peptide sequence derived from the D1 blade of the G 5 protein
This antibody is specific for a peptide sequence within the D1 blade which is not found in the G betas 1-4. Provided as solution in phosphate buffered saline with 0.08% sodium azide.
