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
Substance P (SP), Neurokinin A (NKA) and Neurokinin B (NKB) are all peptides belonging to the Tachykinin protein family. These three peptides which demonstrate a quite heterogeneity in their distribution exert their effect via three receptors: Neurokinin 1-3 receptors, members of the G-protein coupled receptor superfamily. However, Neurokinin 1 Receptor (NK1) preferentially binds Substance P, Neurokinin 2 Receptor (NK2) to NKA and Neurokinin 3 Receptor (NK3) to NKB.
