Immunogen A synthetic peptide from aa region 2-50 of human OPSG conjugated to blue carrier protein was used as the antigen. The peptide is homologous with OPSR.
Specificity Specific for OPSG and OPSR.
Purification Whole serum
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.
Application Notes 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.
Restrictions For Research Use only
Format Lyophilized
Reconstitution Reconstitute in 100 µL of sterile water. Centrifuge to remove any insoluble material.
Handling Advice Avoid freeze and thaw cycles.
Storage 4 °C/-20 °C
Storage Comment Maintain the lyophilised/reconstituted antibodies frozen at -20°C for long term storage and refrigerated at 2-8°C for a shorter term. When reconstituting, glycerol (1:1) may be added for an additional stability. Avoid freeze and thaw cycles.
