Background information:
Serotonin [5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT1)] is an important neurotransmitter in the CNS that exerts its neuronal activity via 5-HT receptors. 5-HT receptors are subdivided into seven families termed 5-HT1 through 5-HT7.1 The 5-HT receptor families belong to the G-Protein Coupled receptor superfamily with the exception of 5-HT3 receptor class which belongs to the ligand-gated ion channels. The 5-HT1 receptor class comprises of five different receptors (5-HT1A, 5-HT1B, 5-HT1D, 5-HT1e AND 5-HT1F) which share 41-63% overall sequence identity and couple preferentially to Gi/Go to inhibit cAMP formation. The 5-HT1A receptor is the most widespread of all the 5-HT receptors. In the central nervous system, 5-HT1A receptors exist in the cerebral cortex, hippocampus, septum, amygdala and raphe nucelus in high densities, and was also demonstrated in a variety of tissues from various species. Activation of 5-HT1A receptor decreases blood pressure and heart rate, involved in learning, memory, relieving anxiety and depression. 5-Hydroxytryptamine Receptor

This antibody needs to be stored at + 4°C in a fridge short term in a concentrated dilution. Freeze thaw will destroy a percentage in every cycle and should be avoided.The receptors are ligand binding factors of type 1, 2 or 3 and protein-molecules that receive chemical-signals from outside a cell. When such chemical-signals couple or bind to a receptor, they cause some form of cellular/tissue-response, e.g. a change in the electrical-activity of a cell. In this sense, am olfactory receptor is a protein-molecule that recognizes and responds to endogenous-chemical signals, chemokinesor cytokines e.g. an acetylcholine-receptor recognizes and responds to its endogenous-ligand, acetylcholine. However, sometimes in pharmacology, the term is also used to include other proteins that are drug-targets, such as enzymes, transporters and ion-channels.
If you buy Antibodies supplied by Biovision they should be stored frozen at - 24°C for long term storage and for short term at + 5°C.
