|Alternative name||taste receptor, type 2, member 42 (TAS2R42, T2R42, T2R55, hT2R55, T2R24)|
|Immunogen||A synthetic peptide from human taste receptor, type 2, member 42 (TAS2R42, T2R42, T2R55, hT2R55, T2R24) conjugated to an immunogenic carrier protein was used as the immunogen.|
|Description||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. 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 42, T2R42, T2R55, TAS2R42, TAS2R55, hT2R55, T2R24.|
|Specificity||Appears to be specific for TAS2R42.|
|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.|
|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.|
