The receptors are ligand binding factors of type 1, 2 or 3 and protein-molecules that receive chemical-signals from outside a cell
When such chemical-signals couple or bind to a receptor, they cause some form of cellular/tissue-response, e.g
a change in the electrical-activity of a cell
In this sense, am olfactory receptor is a protein-molecule that recognizes and responds to endogenous-chemical signals, chemokinesor cytokines e.g
an acetylcholine-receptor recognizes and responds to its endogenous-ligand, acetylcholine
However, sometimes in pharmacology, the term is also used to include other proteins that are drug-targets, such as enzymes, transporters and ion-channels.
If you buy Antibodies supplied by bioassay they should be stored frozen at - 24°C for long term storage and for short term at + 5°C.E05 478 566 350 170 or Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assays,E05 478 566 350 170 or Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assays,Human proteins, cDNA and human recombinants are used in human reactive ELISA kits and to produce anti-human mono and polyclonal antibodies
Modern humans (Homo sapiens, primarily ssp. Homo sapiens sapiens)
Depending on the epitopes used human ELISA kits can be cross reactive to many other species
Mainly analyzed are human serum, plasma, urine, saliva, human cell culture supernatants and biological samples.
