General description

G-protein coupled receptor 56 (GPR56) is a novel, multi-pass membrane protein belonging to the G-protein coupled receptor 2 family and containing a characteristic, extracellular GPS domain. Although newly discovered, studies have suggested roles for the protein in the adhesion between developing neurons, regulating the integrity of pial basement membranes, regulating corticogenesis, and may also be involved in cancer cell metastasis and adhesion. Expression has been observed in a wide variety of peripheral tissues, but the most significant levels have been reported in brain, heart, and thyroid gland. Defects in GPR56 expression cause bilateral frontoparietal polymicrogyria (BFPP), a malformation of the brain in humans that is characterized by ataxia, seizures, disfigurement of the cerebral cortex, and mental retardation.


This antibody recognizes GPR56 at the N-terminus.


Epitope: N-terminus

Linear peptide corresponding to the N-terminus sequence of mouse GPR56.


Detect GPR56 using this Anti-GPR56 Antibody validated for use in IH.

Immunohistochemistry Analysis: 1:200 dilution of this antibody from a previous lot detected GPR56 in anal carcinoma and testicular teratoma tissue.
