Product Specific Information
PA1-1000 detects G protein alpha inhibitor 1/2 from human, rat, and mouse tissues and cells.
PA1-1000 has been successfully used in Immunoprecipitation and Western blot procedures. By Western blot, this antibody detects an ~38 kDa protein representing G protein alpha inhibitor 1/2 from HeLa cell lysate.
The PA1-1000 immunogen is a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues K(346) N N L K D C G L F(355) of human G Protein alpha Inhibitor 1/2. This sequence is completely conserved in human, rat, guinea pig, hamster, bovine, hydra, octopus, Xenopus, chicken, canine, spiny dogfish, great pond snail, starfish, and American lobster G protein alpha inhibitor 1/2. PA1-1000 immunizing peptide (Cat. # PEP-129) is available for use in neutralization and control procedures.
The G protein family of signal transducers includes the alpha, beta, gamma subunits and the effector which are most clearly distinguished by their different alpha chains. The family also includes Gs and Gi, the stimulatory and inhibitory GTP-binding regulators of adenylate cyclase; Go, a protein of unknown function that is abundantly expressed in brain; and transducin 1 and 2, proteins involved in retinal phototransduction. The G proteins possess GTPase activity and are components of a complex membrane signaling system that includes membrane-bound receptors. The system exists to modulate extracellular signals as they are transmitted into the cell.
PA1-1000 was used in immunoprecipitation to investigate the effects of gustducin and taste receptors on glucagon-like peptide-1
