Guinea Pig-Raised Antibodies: Antibodies raised in guinea pig can be used with any non-guinea pig second species antibodies (e.g. antibodies raised in mouse, rabbit, goat, etc.) in complex immunostaining or immunoprecipitation protocols. Our line of guinea pig raised antibodies can be combined with any of our rabbit-raised or ATTO-conjugated antibodies in complex immunostaining protocols.
Adenylyl cyclases (ACs) are a family of enzymes that synthesize cAMP, upon stimulation. cAMP is an important second messenger, which regulates carbohydrate, lipid, protein, and nucleic acid metabolism as well as synaptic transmission, ion channel function, and transcription in neurons. There are nine closely related isoforms of ACs (AC1–9) in mammals. All AC isoforms share a primary structure consisting of two hydrophobic regions which comprise six transmembrane helices and three large cytoplasmic domains. The basic catalytic unit of a membrane-bound AC molecule consists of the C1a and C2 domains. The N-terminus domains of ACs are highly variable, and might play a regulatory role.
