  ANTIBODIES  

(anti-Human and others as indicated)

RDI Divison of researchd Industries Intl  offers a wide line of  antibodies. Since no one antibody works best for all applications (neutralization, blotting, ELISA, etc), we offer many different types of antibodies to help solve this problem. Please inquire for other applications or types of antibodies not listed below.

Mouse anti-Endothelin 1 Receptor (Human/mouse/Rat)

        RDI-ET1RECPabm-1    $750.00/150ug


Background: Endothelin-1 (ET-1) is a potent vasoconstrictor that is secreted by vascular endothelial cells. ET-1, ET-2, ET-3, and endothelin b are members of a family of related peptides. All are 21 amino acid peptides with two disulfide bridges. ET-1 and ET-2 differ by only two residues, while ET-3 differs from both by six residues. ET-1 and ET-2 are highly effective on vascular smooth muscle, while the effects of ET-3 are minimal. ET-1 and its precursor, big ET-1, are the primary forms present in the circulation. Circulating ET-1 plays a pathologic role in the etiology of hypertension and antagonists are utilized in the treatment of this disease. The ET-1 receptor is a seven-transmembrane domain receptor of the G-protein-coupled family that signals via transient increases in intracellular Ca 2+. It is primarily expressed in lung and heart and is detected at lower levels in liver, brain, muscle, and kidney. ET-1 receptor interacts with ET-1, ET-2, and ET-3. However, it has a 2-3 fold higher affinity for ET-1 than ET-2 and the affinity for ET-3 is more than 100 fold lower. Thus, ligation of the ET-1 receptor by ET-1 induces increased intracellular Ca 2+ that signals to promote vasoconstriction.

TECHNICAL BULLETIN

For Use With Anti-Endothelin A & Anti-Endothelin B Polyclonal  Antibodies.


Techniques For Immunocytochemical Staining & Immunoprecipitation

N.B.: These PAbs recognize epitopes on the cytoplasmic side of the receptors. Thus, to efective use these antibodies, the cell membrane must be permeable to antibodies. These antibodies, therefore, are of significant benefit since they will not block the binding of endothelins to the receptors. (try with and without  0.1% saponin for various tissues)


IMMUNOCYTOCHEMICAL STAINING for ET-A and ET-B receptors

Fixed paraffin-embedded sections (4-6 um) are deparaffinized, stained, counterstained, dehydrated, cleared and mounted. Block the sections with 10% normal rabbit serum to inhibit non-specific binding. Dilute the Protein G purified sheep anti-ET-Br or anti-ET-Ar to 10 ug IgG/ml in PBS containing 1.0% normal rabbit serum.Perform the immunoreactivity by using a peroxidase-coupled rabbit anti-sheep IgG.


IMMUNOPRECIPITATION OF ET-A and ET-B receptors

Prepare cell lysates (-5mg) by homogenizing tissues in 2mL RIPA (50mM Tris, pH = 7.5, 150mMNAC1, 1% NP-40, 0.5% deoxycholic acid,0.1% SDS, 2 mM EDTA, 10 mM NaF, 10 ug/ml leupeptin, 10 ug/ml pepstatin, 20 ug/ml aprotinin). Centrifuge the homogenate for 10 minutes at 1000xg. Dilute 500ul of the cell lysate 1:1 in RIPA buffer. Immunoprecipitate the receptors with 4ug of appropriate antibody for 1 hour at room temperature. Collect the precipitin with Protein G Plus Agarose and wash 3 times with 1.0 ml RIPAbuffer. Suspend the final pellet in 40 ul 2X SDS loading buffer,heated at 100'C for 5 minutes and recentifuge for 5 minutes in a microcentrifuge. Load 40uls of the supernatent onto a 8-16% gradient SDA-PAGE minigel. After electrophoresis, transfer the proteins to a nitrocellulose filter and block overnight in blocking buffer (3% BSA, 10 mM Tris pH 7.5, 100 mM NaC1, & 0.1% Tween-20). React the transferred proteins with Endothelin A & B receptor antibodies diluted 1:400 in blocking buffer for 1 hour at 25'C. Then add rabbit anti-sheep IgG HRP (KPL) diluted 1:5000 in blocking buffer for 1 hour at 25'C. Wash the nitrocellulose filter extensively. Detect the Endothelin A & B proteins using the Enhanced Chemiluminescent detection system by Amersham (tm).


Saponin Method:

Dulbecco's PBS (without Mg2+ or CA2+)

1% heat inactivated FCS (or RIA grade BSA)

0.1% w/v sodium azide

0.1% w/v saponin (Sigma cat#S-7900)
