Human DRD2 derived in Human HEK293T cell line.
This gene encodes the D2 subtype of the dopamine receptor. This G-protein coupled receptor inhibits adenylyl cyclase activity. A missense mutation in this gene causes myoclonus dystonia; other mutations have been associated with schizophrenia. Alternative splicing of this gene results in two transcript variants encoding different isoforms. A third variant has been described, but it has not been determined whether this form is normal or due to aberrant splicing.
Human HEK293T cell line
1 vial of 100 ug gene specific transient over-expression cell lysate in RIPA buffer
1 vial of 100 ?g empty vector transfected control cell lysate in RIPA buffer
1 vial of 250ul 2xSDS Sample Buffer (4% SDS, 125mM Tris-HCl pH6.8, 10% Glycerol, 0.002% Bromphenol blue, 100mM DTT)
The lysate is shipped with dry ice. Upon receiving, store the sample at -20 centigrade. Lysate samples are stable for 12 months from date of receipt when stored at -20 centigrade. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
Lysate samples can be diluted with 2xSDS Sample Buffer provided. After dilution, the protein sample should be aliquoted and stored at -20 centigrade for long term storage. Prior to SDS-PAGE fractionation, boil the lysate for 5 minutes.
