Cholecystokinin A Receptor (CCKAR) is one of two 7TM receptors for cholecystokinin peptide hormones. This GPCR is involved in gallbladder contraction, insulin secretion, and central nervous system function. CCK-A R has been implicated in pancreatic tumorigenesis as well as the pathogenesis of eating disorders and drug addiction. Human CCK-A R shares 89% aa sequence identity with mouse and rat CCKAR.
Suitable for use in Flow Cytometry. Other applications not tested.
Flow Cytometry: 25ug/ml, 10ul of the diluted solution labels 1-2.5x10e5 cells in a total reaction volume ≤200ul. Validated for use using human CCKAR transfectants.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
