- Description of Target:
- The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the G-protein coupled receptor 1 family, and functions as a receptor for angiotensin II. It is an intergral membrane protein that is highly expressed in fetus, but scantily in adult tissues, except brain, adrenal medulla, and atretic ovary. This receptor has been shown to mediate programmed cell death and this apoptotic function may play an important role in developmental biology and pathophysiology. Mutations in this gene are been associated with X-linked mental retardation.

How do Aviva's reagents play a role in your experimental goals?
Renin-angiotensin system characterization.
How would you rate this antibody on a scale from 1-5 (5=best) and why?
4; band is clean however not at the expected MW which is approximately 41kDa; we see this band between 30-40kDa in rat brain homogenate.
Would you use this antibody in future experiments?
Have you used another antibody which has worked in your application?
If the antibody works, do you plan to use it in future experiments or to publish your data? Why or why not?
Yes, once we make sure with added controls that the band we see approximately 30 kda is AGTR2.
Sample Description (please include 1) species type, and 2) cell/tissue type, and 3) how much protein loaded for each lane of your gel):
Rat brain: lane #1 is dorsal medulla tissue extract (40 ug) and lane # 2 is isolated mitochondria from rat brain cortex and hypothalamus pooled (20 ug).
How many different experimental trials were conducted using the antibody sample?
What type of experimental sample are you using and how did you preparing it?
"Lane # 1: homogenize brain dorsal medulla in 20mM potassium phosphate buffer, pH 7.0 with 1mM EGTA and Sigma protease cocktail inhibitor; and prepare samples in Laemmli buffer for WB
Lane # 2: isolate brain mitochondria (cortex and hypothalamus pooled) and prepare samples in Laemmli buffer for WB"
