Immunogen A synthetic peptide from human OPSG and OPSR (green & red-sensitive opsin, OPN1MW, OPN1LW, GCP, RCP, CBBM, opsin 1) conjugated to an immunogenic carrier protein was used as the immunogen.
Specificity Appears to be specific for OPSG and OPSR.
Purity whole serum
Alternative Name OPSG and OPSR (greenred-sensitive opsin opsin 1, M opsin)
Background Function: Visual pigments are the light-absorbing molecules that mediate vision. They consist of an apoprotein, opsin, covalently linked to cis-retinal. BIOPHYSICOCHEMICAL PROPERTIES: Absorption:       Abs(max)=530 nm,
Subcellular location: Membrane, Multi-pass membrane protein.
Tissue specificity: The three color pigments are found in the cone photoreceptor cells. PTM: Phosphorylated on some or all of the serine and threonine residues present in the C-terminal region. DISEASE: Defects in OPN1MW are the cause of partial colorblindness deutan series (CBD), also called deuteranopia. Also known as: Green-sensitive opsin, green cone photoreceptor pigment, OPN1MW, OPN1LW, GCP, RCP, CBBM, OPN1MW1, opsin 1 (cone pigments), medium-wave-sensitive (color blindness, deutan), red-sensitive opsin, red cone photoreceptor pigment, M opsin.
UniProt P04001
Application Notes IHC, WB. A dilution of 1 : 300 to 1 : 2000 is recommended. The optimal dilution should be determined by the end user. Not yet tested in other applications.
