Rabbit anti Rat Calcitonin Receptor antibody recognizes the calcitonin receptor in human, mouse and rat. The calcitonin receptor is a seven transmembrane domain cell surface protein which is coupled to G protein messenger systems. Rabbit anti Rat Calcitonin Receptor antibody recognizes an epitope within the cytoplasmic domain that is common to both C1a and C1b rat isoforms.

Calcitonin receptor is expressed in kidney, central and peripheral nervous systems and in osteoclasts. It is also expressed in a number of tissues during the development of the embryo and may be important in foetal morphogenesis.

Storage Information

This product is shipped at ambient temperature. It is recommended to aliquot and store at -20°C on receipt. When thawed, aliquot the sample as needed. Keep aliquots at 2-8°C for short term use (up to 4 weeks) and store the remaining aliquots at -20°C.

Avoid repeated freezing and thawing as this may denature the antibody. Storage in frost-free freezers is not recommended.

  1. 1The use of 4% paraformaldehyde fixation, rather than formalin fixation is recommended.

    A sensitive detection system is also recommended. e.g. A catalysed signal amplification system.
Where this antibody has not been tested for use in a particular technique this does not necessarily exclude its use in such procedures. It is recommended that the user titrates the antibody for use in their own system using appropriate negative/positive controls.
