Specificity

Reacts with a protein of 39 kDa identified as rhodopsin (opsin). MAB5316 specifically labels the axons and synaptic pedicles of the rods.

CELLULAR LOCALIZATION:

Cytoplasmic

Immunogen

Membrane preparation from adult rat retina.

Application

Detect Rhodopsin using this Anti-Rhodopsin Antibody, clone RET-P1 validated for use in IC & WB.
Immunoblotting: 1 μg/mL

Immunocytochemistry

Immunohistochemistry (frozen and formalin/paraffin): 1-2 μg/mL. Staining of formalin fixed tissue sections requires boiling the tissue sections in 10mM citrate buffer, pH 6.0 for 10-20 minutes followed by cooling at room temperature for 20 minutes.

Optimal working dilutions must be determined by end user.

Retinitis pigmentosa (RP) is a blinding disease often associated with mutations in rhodopsin, a light-sensing G protein-coupled receptor and phospholipid scramblase. Most RP-associated mutations affect rhodopsin's activity or transport to disc membranes. Intriguingly, some mutations produce apparently normal rhodopsins that
