Preparation and Storage
Store at 2-8 degree C. Do not freeze. The user must validate any other storage conditions. When properly stored, the reagent is stable to the date indicated on the label. Do not use the reagent beyond the expiration date. There are no definitive signs to indicate instability of this product; therefore, positive and negative controls should be tested simultaneously with unknown specimens. If unexpected results are observed which cannot be explained by variations in laboratory procedures and a problem with the reagent is suspected, contact Technical Support.
Other Notes
Small volumes of anti-D5DR 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.

anti-D5DR antibody
The dopamine receptors are divided into two classes, D1 and D2, which differ in their functional characteristics. D1DR and D5DR compose the D1 class of dopamine receptors, and D2DR, D3DR and D4DR compose the D2 class. D1 receptors stimulate adenylyl cyclase, while D2 receptors inhibit adenylyl cyclase activity.

NCBI Summary for D5DR
This gene encodes the D5 subtype of the dopamine receptor. The D5 subtype is a G-protein coupled receptor which stimulates adenylyl cyclase. This receptor is expressed in neurons in the limbic regions of the brain. It has a 10-fold higher affinity for dopamine than the D1 subtype. Pseudogenes related to this gene reside on chromosomes 1 and 2. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
UniProt Comments for D5DR
DRD5: Dopamine receptor whose activity is mediated by G proteins which activate adenylyl cyclase. Defects in DRD5 are a cause of benign essential blepharospasm (BEB). BEB is a primary focal dystonia affecting the orbicularis oculi muscles. Dystonia is defined by the presence of sustained involuntary muscle contraction, often leading to abnormal postures. BEB usually begins in middle age. Initial symptoms include eye irritation and frequent blinking, progressing to involuntary spasms of eyelid closure. Patients have normal eyes. The visual disturbance is due solely to the forced closure of the eyelids. In severe cases, this can lead to functional blindness. Belongs to the G-protein coupled receptor 1 family.
