EDG1, a Lysophospholipid/Lysosphingolipid Receptor, binds sphingosine-1-phosphate and may control cell proliferation, survival, and suppression of apoptosis. Overexpression of EDG-1 leads to increased cell-cell aggregation and overexpression of cadherins. EDG-1 transcripts have been reported to be present in embryonic and adult brain, lung alveolar macrophages, vascular smooth muscle cells, endothelial cells, fibroblasts, melanocytes, and TAg-Jurkat T cells, but to be absent from breast cancer cell lines. ESTs have been isolated from brain, breast, heart, heart/melanocyte/uterus, kidney, liver, liver/spleen, lung, nerve, placenta, prostate, tonsil, uterus, and vessel libraries.
Suitable for use in Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.
Immunohistochemistry(Formalin-fixed Paraffin): 10ug/ml
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, aliquot and add glycerol (40-50%). Store at -20 degrees C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 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.
