|Alternative name||taste receptor, type 2, member 40 (TAS2R40, T2R40, T2R58, GPR60)|
|Immunogen||A synthetic peptide as a part of human taste receptor, type 2, member 40 (TAS2R40, T2R40, T2R58, GPR60) conjugated to an immunogenic carrier protein was used as the immunogen.|
|Description||FUNCTION: Gustducin-coupled receptor implicated in the perception of bitter compounds in the oral cavity and the gastrointestinal tract. Signals through PLCB2 and the calcium-regulated cation channel TRPM5. SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. TISSUE SPECIFICITY: Expressed in subsets of taste receptor cells of the tongue and exclusively in gustducin-positive cells. MISCELLANEOUS: Several bitter taste receptors are expressed in a single taste receptor cell.

|Specificity||Appears to be specific for TAS2R40.|
|Application Notes||IHC, WB. A dilution of 1 : 300 to 1 : 4000 is recommended. The optimal dilution should be determined by the end user.|
|Storage||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.|
|Restrictions||For Research Use only|
