      ApplicationDetect Rhodopsin using this Anti-Rhodopsin Antibody, clone RET-P1 validated for use in IC & WB.
      Key Applications
      • Immunocytochemistry
      • Western Blotting
      Application NotesImmunoblotting: 1 μg/mL


      Immunohistochemistry (frozen and formalin/paraffin): 1-2 μg/mL. Staining of formalin fixed tissue sections requires boiling the tissue sections in 10mM citrate buffer, pH 6.0 for 10-20 minutes followed by cooling at room temperature for 20 minutes.

      Optimal working dilutions must be determined by end user.
      Biological Information
      ImmunogenMembrane preparation from adult rat retina.
      ConcentrationPlease refer to the Certificate of Analysis for the lot-specific concentration.
      SpecificityReacts with a protein of 39 kDa identified as rhodopsin (opsin). MAB5316 specifically labels the axons and synaptic pedicles of the rods.

      Entrez Gene Number
      Entrez Gene SummaryRetinitis pigmentosa is an inherited progressive disease which is a major cause of blindness in western communities. It can be inherited as an autosomal dominant, autosomal recessive, or X-linked recessive disorder. In the autosomal dominant form,which comprises about 25% of total cases, approximately 30% of families have mutations in the gene encoding the rod photoreceptor-specific protein rhodopsin. This is the transmembrane protein which, when photoexcited, initiates the visual transduction cascade. Defects in this gene are also one of the causes of congenital stationary night blindness.

      UniProt Number
      UniProt SummaryFUNCTION: SwissProt: P08100 # Photoreceptor required for image-forming vision at low light intensity. Required for photoreceptor cell viability after birth. Light-induced isomerization of 11-cis to all-trans retinal triggers a conformational change leading to G-protein activation and release of all-trans retinal.
      SIZE: 348 amino acids; 38893 Da
      SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein.
      TISSUE SPECIFICITY: Rod shaped photoreceptor cells which mediates vision in dim light.
      PTM: Phosphorylated on some or all of the serine and threonine residues present in the C-terminal region.
      DISEASE: SwissProt: P08100 # Defects in RHO are the cause of retinitis pigmentosa type 4 (RP4) [MIM:180380]. RP leads to degeneration of retinal photoreceptor cells. Patients typically have night vision blindness and loss of midperipheral visual field. As their condition progresses, they lose their far peripheral visual field and eventually central vision as well. RP4 inheritance is autosomal dominant. & Defects in RHO are a cause of retinitis pigmentosa autosomal recessive (ARRP) [MIM:268000]. & Defects in RHO are a cause of autosomal dominant congenital stationary night blindness 1 (CSNBAD1) [MIM:610445]; also known as rhodopsin-related congenital stationary night blindness. Congenital stationary night blindness is a nonprogressive retinal disorder characterized by impaired night vision and ocular symptoms such as myopia, hyperopia, nystagmus and reduced visual acuity.
      SIMILARITY: SwissProt: P08100 ## Belongs to the G-protein coupled receptor 1 family. Opsin subfamily.
