|Protein Name||5-hydroxytryptamine receptor 2A(5-HT-2/5-HT-2A)|
|Molecular Weight||52603 MW|
|Protein Function||G-protein coupled receptor for 5-hydroxytryptamine (serotonin). Also functions as a receptor for various drugs and psychoactive substances, including mescaline, psilocybin, 1-(2,5- dimethoxy-4-iodophenyl)-2-aminopropane (DOI) and lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD). Ligand binding causes a conformation change that triggers signaling via guanine nucleotide-binding proteins (G proteins) and modulates the activity of down-stream effectors. Beta-arrestin family members inhibit signaling via G proteins and mediate activation of alternative signaling pathways. Signaling activates phospholipase C and a phosphatidylinositol-calcium second messenger system that modulates the activity of phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase and promotes the release of Ca(2+) ions from intracellular stores. Affects neural activity, perception, cognition and mood. Plays a role in the regulation of behavior, including responses to anxiogenic situations and psychoactive substances. Plays a role in intestinal smooth muscle contraction, and may play a role in arterial vasoconstriction. .|
|Tissue Specificity||Detected in brain cortex (at protein level). Detected in blood platelets. .|
|Sequence Similarities||Belongs to the G-protein coupled receptor 1 family.|
|Subcellular Localization||Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. Cell projection, dendrite . Cell projection, axon . Cytoplasmic vesicle . Membrane, caveola . Localizes to the postsynaptic thickening of axo-dendritic synapses. .|

"We have tested PA1373 trial sample in our lab and it works far better compared to other vendors. We are extremely happy to get the results. We looked for 5HT2A expression in various brain regions. Our bands show clear expression level of 5HT2A. We now plan to buy this antibody for all our laboratory needs."
1. Post-translational modification:phosphorylation, methylation, glycosylation etc. These modifications prevent SDS molecules from binding to the target protein and thus make the band size appear larger than expected
2. Post-translational cleavage: this can cause smaller bands and or multiple bands
3. Alternative splicing: the same gene can have alternative splicing patterns generating different size proteins, all with reactivities to the antibody.
4. Amino Acid R chain charge: SDS binds to positive charges. The different size and charge of the Amino Acid side chains can affect the amount of SDS binding and thus affect the observed band size.
5. Multimers: Multimers are usually broken up in reducing conditions. However if the interactions between the multimers are strong, the band may appear higher.,
