52 kDa. ( Note )

Specificity/Sensitivity

OPN4 Antibody detects endogenous levels of total Melanopsin protein.
PROPERTIES

Form

Liquid

Buffer

Phosphate buffered saline (without Mg2+ and Ca2+), pH 7.4, 150mM NaCl, 0.02% sodium azide and 50% glycerol.

Storage

Store as concentrated solution. Centrifuge briefly prior to opening vial. For short-term storage (1-2 weeks), store at 4ºC. For long-term storage, aliquot and store at -20ºC or below. Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles.

Antigen Species

Human

Immunogen

The antiserum was produced against synthesized peptide derived from human Melanopsin.

Purification

The antibody was affinity-purified from rabbit antiserum by affinity-chromatography using epitope-specific immunogen.

Conjugation

Unconjugated

Note

For laboratory use only. Not for any clinical, therapeutic, or diagnostic use in humans or animals. Not for animal or human consumption.
TARGET

Synonyms

Opsin 4,Mop,Opn4

Cellular Localization

Found in soma, dendrites and proximal part of axons of certain retinal ganglion cells.

Background

Photoreceptor required for regulation of circadian rhythm. Contributes to pupillar reflex and other non-image forming responses to light. May be able to isomerize covalently bound all-trans retinal back to 11-cis retinal.
