Preparation and Storage
Store at 4 degree C or at -20 degree C if preferred. This product should be stored undiluted. Avoid repeated freezing and thawing as this may denature the antibody. Should this product contain a precipitate we recommend microcentrifugation before use.
Shelf Life: 12 months from date of despatch.
Other Notes
Small volumes of anti-Calcr 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.
Related Product Information for
anti-Calcr antibody
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. MBS221657 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.

NCBI Summary for Calcr
receptor for calcitonin; acts via adenylate cyclase signaling [RGD, Feb 2006]
UniProt Comments for Calcr
CALCR: This is a receptor for calcitonin. The activity of this receptor is mediated by G proteins which activate adenylyl cyclase. The calcitonin receptor is thought to couple to the heterotrimeric guanosine triphosphate-binding protein that is sensitive to cholera toxin. Belongs to the G-protein coupled receptor 2 family. 3 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative splicing.

Protein type: Membrane protein, multi-pass; Membrane protein, integral; GPCR, family 2; Receptor, GPCR
