RDI Division of Fitzgerald 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-Beta Arrestin 1 Monoclonal ab

cat# RDI-BARREST1abm      $438.00/vial 50ug

       RDI-BARREST1abm-1   $750.00/vial 150ug

Background: B arrestins were discovered by their ability to modulate the interactions between the phosphorylated B2-Adrenergic receptors and G proteins. This modulation resulted in a diminished B2-adrenergic receptor function, also known as desensitization. Because arrestins are found at the synaptic terminals, they may provide a termination mechanism that allows the neurons to regain their original polarization and respond to a new neurotransmitter stimulus. The C-terminal region of arrestins is involved in selecting the phosphorylated and activated adrenergic receptors. The B-arrestin 1 gene encodes for a protein of 418 amino acids with an approx molecular weight of 55kDa. B-arrestin 1 is highly homologous to the 45kDa B-arrestin 2. Both proteins are widely expressed, but are especially abundant in the central nervous system.
