Immunogen A synthetic peptide from aa region 210-260 of human TAS2R13 conjugated to blue carrier protein was used as the antigen.
Specificity Specific for TAS2R13.
Purification Whole serum
Alternative Name TAS2R13 (TAS2R13 Antibody Abstract)
Background This gene product belongs to the family of candidate taste receptors that are members of the G-protein-coupled receptor superfamily. These proteins are specifically expressed in the taste receptor cells of the tongue and palate epithelia. They are organized in the genome in clusters and are genetically linked to loci that influence bitter perception in mice and humans. In functional expression studies, they respond to bitter tastants. This gene maps to the taste receptor gene cluster on chromosome 12p13.
Function: Receptor that may play a role in the perception of bitterness and is gustducin-linked. May play a role in sensing the chemical composition of the gastrointestinal content. The activity of this receptor may stimulate alpha gustducin, mediate PLC-beta-2 activation and lead to the gating of TRPM5.
Subcellular location: Membrane, Multi-pass membrane protein.
Tissue specificity: Expressed in subsets of taste receptor cells of the tongue and palate epithelium and exclusively in gustducin-positive cells.
Miscellaneous: Most taste cells may be activated by a limited number of bitter compounds, individual taste cells can discriminate among bitter stimuli. Also known as: Taste receptor type 2 member 13, T2R13, Taste receptor family B member 3,TRB3.
Research Area Neurology
Application Notes A dilution of 1 : 300 to 1 : 2000 is recommended.
