Related Product Information for
anti-TACR3 antibody
NK3R Antibody: The tachykinins are a family of small peptides that include the neurotransmitters substance P, neurokinin A, and neurokinin B, which can act on three related but distinct seven transmembrane G-proteins coupled receptors, albeit at different concentrations. The NK-3 receptor (NK3R) has greatest affinity for neurokinin B and is highly expressed in the supraoptic and paraventricular nuclei. Following binding of its ligand, NK3R activates a phosphatidylinositol-calcium second messenger system. It is likely these signals lead to the release of vasopressin and oxytocin into the circulation. NK3R may be involved in learning and memory as mice lacking this gene expressed cognitive deficits compared to normal mice. Although it has been suggested that NK3R plays a role in the regulation of vagal afferent relay neurons, it is likely that these receptors are activated by substance P or neurokinin A, as the airway nerves do not express neurokinin B. NK3R antibody does not recognize NK1R or NK2R.

NCBI Summary for TACR3
This gene belongs to a family of genes that function as receptors for tachykinins. Receptor affinities are specified by variations in the 5'-end of the sequence. The receptors belonging to this family are characterized by interactions with G proteins and 7 hydrophobic transmembrane regions. This gene encodes the receptor for the tachykinin neurokinin 3, also referred to as neurokinin B. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
UniProt Comments for TACR3
TACR3: This is a receptor for the tachykinin neuropeptide neuromedin-K (neurokinin B). It is associated with G proteins that activate a phosphatidylinositol-calcium second messenger system. The rank order of affinity of this receptor to tachykinins is: neuromedin-K > substance K > substance P. Belongs to the G-protein coupled receptor 1 family.
