FPR1, FPRL1, and FPRL2 constitute a group of 7-transmembrane segment chemotactic receptors that are expressed on phagocytes. FPR1 binding of bacterial N-formyl-methionyl peptides draws neutrophils to sites of infection and promotes degranulation.
Suitable for use in flow cytometry. Other applications have not been tested.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4 degrees C for short-term only. For long-term storage and to avoid repeated freezing and thawing, add sterile glycerol (40-50%), aliquot and store at -20 degrees C. Aliquots are stable for at least 6 months at -20 degrees C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
