Extracellular antibodies are ideal research tools for cell-surface proteins.
No permeabilization/fixation because using extracellular antibodies allows you to work with live cells!
Benefits of live cell imaging:
✓ Monitor cell movement
✓ Study protein transport across the cell
✓ Investigate protein internalization
The Calcium-Sensing Receptor (CaSR) is a member of the G-protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) superfamily. As its primary role, the CaSR is a key player in calcium homeostasis and is expressed in tissues involved in calcium metabolism, such as parathyroid cells and kidney. CaSR regulates cellular processes such as proliferation, apoptosis, and differentiation under both normal and pathologic conditions.
