Calcitonin Receptor Rabbit anti-Human, Invitrogen™
Rabbit Recombinant Monoclonal Antibody
Manufacturer: LIFE TECHNOLOGIES 702621
This antibody is predicted to react with Monkey, Horse, Dog. Recombit rabbit monoclonal antibodies are produced using in vitro expression systems. The expression systems are developed by cloning in the specific antibody DNA sequences from immunoreactive rabbits. Then, individual clones are screened to select the best candidates for production. The advantages of using recombit rabbit monoclonal antibodies include: better specificity and sensitivity, lot-to-lot consistency, animal origin-free formulations, and broader immunoreactivity to diverse targets due to larger rabbit immune repertoire.The Calcitonin Receptor inhibits bone resorption. This receptor is expressed during development and is involved in morphogenesis. Three alternatively spliced Calcitonin Receptor isoforms have been identified. In addition to binding calcitonin, the Calcitonin Receptor can complex with RAMP3 (receptor activity modifying protein) to bind amylin, which regulates pancreatic islet function and is involved in Type II diabetes. The Calcitonin Receptor has been reported in artery, blood, bone, brain, kidney, lung, placenta, prostate, skeletal muscle, and thyroid. ESTs have been isolated from bone, embryo, kidney, and melanocyte/uterus/fetal heart libraries.This gene encodes a high-affinity receptor for the peptide hormone calcitonin and belongs to a subfamily of seven transmembrane-spanning G protein-coupled receptors. The encoded protein is involved in maintaining calcium homeostasis and in regulating osteoclast-mediated bone resorption. Polymorphisms in this gene have been associated with variations in bone mineral density and onset of osteoporosis.
