Optimal dilution of the TGFBR1 antibody should be determined by the researcher.
This TGFBR1 antibodyis to be used only for research purposes and not for diagnostics..
Amino acids HNRTVIHHRVPNEEDPSLDRPFISEGTTLKDLIYDMTT of human TGFBR1 were used as the immunogen for the TGFBR1 antibody.
If you buy Antibodies supplied by NJS poly they should be stored frozen at - 24°C for long term storage and for short term at + 5°C.
Human (Homo sapiens) ; Due to limited knowledge and inability to test the antibody against all known species, we cannot guarantee that no other cross reactivity can occur.
After reconstitution, the TGFBR1 antibody may be kept for up to one month refrigerated at +4 degrees C.For long-term, aliquot and store at -20 deg. Celcius or lower. Cycles of freezing and thawing can denaturate the peptide chains of the antibodies and reduce their sensitivity and/or change their affinity. Prepare aliqotes in such a manner so that freeze-thaw cycles are minimized. Avoid repeated freezing and thawing.
The receptors are ligand binding factors of type 1, 2 or 3 and protein-molecules that receive chemical-signals from outside a cell. When such chemical-signals couple or bind to a receptor, they cause some form of cellular/tissue-response, e.g. a change in the electrical-activity of a cell. In this sense, am olfactory receptor is a protein-molecule that recognizes and responds to endogenous-chemical signals, chemokinesor cytokines e.g. an acetylcholine-receptor recognizes and responds to its endogenous-ligand, acetylcholine. However, sometimes in pharmacology, the term is also used to include other proteins that are drug-targets, such as enzymes, transporters and ion-channels.
Transforming growth factor, beta receptor I is a TGF beta receptor. TGFBR1 is its human gene. The protein encoded by this gene forms a heteromeric complex with type II TGF-beta receptors when bound to TGF-beta, transducing the TGF-beta signal from the cell surface to the cytoplasm. Mutations in this gene have been associated with Loeys-Dietz aortic aneurysm syndrome (LDAS). TGFB1 regulates cell cycle progression by a unique signaling mechanism that involves its binding to TGFBR2 and activation of TGFBR1. Both are transmembrane serine/threonine receptor kinases. The TGFBR1 receptor may be inactivated in many of the cases of human tumor cells refractory to TGFB-mediated cell cycle arrest. Vellucci and Reiss (1997) reported that the TGFBR1 gene is approximately 31 kb long and contains 9 exons. The organization of the segment of the gene that encodes the C-terminal portion of the serine/threonine kinase domain appears to be highly conserved among members of the gene family.
