This LGR5/GPR49 antibody is generated from mice immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 443-473 amino acids from human LGR5/GPR49.
Mouse monoclonal antibody supplied in crude ascites with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide.
Receptor for R-spondins that potentiates the canonical Wnt signaling pathway and acts as a stem cell marker of the intestinal epithelium and the hair follicle. Upon binding to R- spondins (RSPO1, RSPO2, RSPO3 or RSPO4), associates with phosphorylated LRP6 and frizzled receptors that are activated by extracellular Wnt receptors, triggering the canonical Wnt signaling pathway to increase expression of target genes. In contrast to classical G-protein coupled receptors, does not activate heterotrimeric G-proteins to transduce the signal. Involved in the development and/or maintenance of the adult intestinal stem cells during postembryonic development.
Cellular Location
Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. Golgi apparatus, trans-Golgi network membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. Note=Rapidly and constitutively internalized to the trans-Golgi network at steady state. Internalization to the trans- Golgi network may be the result of phosphorylation at Ser-861 and Ser-864; however, the phosphorylation event has not been proven (PubMed:23439653).
Tissue Location
Expressed in skeletal muscle, placenta, spinal cord, and various region of brain. Expressed at the base of crypts in colonic and small mucosa stem cells. In premalignant cancer expression is not restricted to the cript base.Overexpressed in cancers of the ovary, colon and liver.
Preparation and Storage
Maintain refrigerated at 2-8 degree C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20 degree C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
Other Notes
Small volumes of anti-LGR5 antibody vial(s) may occasionally become entrapped in the seal of the product vial during shipment and storage. If necessary, briefly centrifuge the vial on a tabletop centrifuge to dislodge any liquid in the container`s cap. Certain products may require to ship with dry ice and additional dry ice fee may apply.

NCBI Summary for LGR5
The protein encoded by this gene is a leucine-rich repeat-containing receptor (LGR) and member of the G protein-coupled, 7-transmembrane receptor (GPCR) superfamily. The encoded protein is a receptor for R-spondins and is involved in the canonical Wnt signaling pathway. This protein plays a role in the formation and maintenance of adult intestinal stem cells during postembryonic development. Several transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2015]
UniProt Comments for LGR5
LGR5: a leucine-rich repeat-containing G-protein-coupled receptor. Receptor for R-spondins, potent stimulators of adult stem cell proliferation. A marker of cycling, long-lived and multipotent adult stem cell populations. Target gene of Wnt signaling. A Wnt receptor component that enhances Wnt signaling by soluble R-spondin proteins. Intestinal Lgr5+ stem cells give rise throughout life to proliferation of cells in crypts, which migrate along the crypt-villus axis, differentiating into five main cell types. Wnt signaling plays a crucial role in the proliferation and differentiation of these crypt epithelial cells. Two isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative splicing.
