Scientific background

The Angiotensin-(1-7) Mas receptor is the recently identified receptor of the biologically active heptapeptide angiotensin-(1-7).1
 
Angiotensin (Ang)-(1-7) is a metabolite of the well known peptide hormone Angiotensin (Ang) II, a key component of the renin-angiotensin system (RAS) that has a central role in cardiovascular homeostasis.
 
Considerably interest in Ang-(1-7) and its receptor aroused in the last few years since it became apparent that it can counterbalance most of Ang II effects. Thus Ang-(1-7) has vasodilator and hypotensive effects as well as antiarrhythmic and cardioprotective roles.2, 3
 
The Ang-(1-7) Mas receptor belongs to the 7-transmembrane domain, G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) superfamily and was originally described as a protooncogene.

Signaling via the Ang-(1-7) Mas receptor is still poorly elucidated however, evidence indicates that the receptor is coupled to a Gq/11 protein that activates phospholipase C (PLC).2,3
 
The Ang-(1-7) Mas receptor is expressed in several organs including heart, kidney, blood vessels, testis and brain. Studies with Ang-(1-7) Mas receptor knockout mice have demonstrated the key role of this receptor in cardiovascular regulation as well as in the regulation of learning and memory.2

Alomone Labs is pleased to offer a highly specific antibody directed against an epitope of the rat protein. Guinea pig Anti-Angiotensin-(1-7) Mas Receptor Antibody (#AGP-099) raised in guinea pig can be used in western blot analysis. It has been designed to recognize Ang-(1-7) Mas receptor from rat, mouse and human samples. The antigen used to immunize guinea pigs is the same as Anti-Angiotensin-(1-7) Mas Receptor Antibody (#AAR-013) raised in rabbit. Our line of guinea pig antibodies enables more flexibility with our products such as multiplex staining studies, immunoprecipitation, etc.
