A synthetic peptide from rat vomeronasal type-1 receptor B9 (V1rb9, VN1B9, V1rb12, Vnr5, Vn5) conjugated to an immunogenic carrier protein was used as the antigen.
Vomeronasal type-1 receptor B12, vomeronasal receptor 5, pheromone receptor VN5, V1rb9, VN1B9, V1rb12, Vnr5, Vn5
Putative pheromone receptor; may play a role in olfactory sensory perception.
FUNCTION: Putative pheromone receptor implicated in the regulation of social as well as reproductive behavior.
SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein.
TISSUE SPECIFICITY: Expressed in 1-4% of neurons of the vomeronasal organ. Only one pheromone receptor gene may be expressed in a particular neuron. Not expressed in the main olfactory epithelium.
Maintain the lyophilised/reconstituted antibodies frozen at -20°C for long term storage and refrigerated at 2-8°C for a shorter term. When reconstituting, glycerol (1:1) may be added for an additional stability. Avoid freeze and thaw cycles.
12 months after reconstitution
This item will be shipped to you at ambient temperature in a lyophilised form.
