TRPV1 (also named VR1, capsaicin receptor and vanilloid receptor) is a member of the transient receptor potential (TRP) channel family, which includes TRPC, TRPM, TRPA, TRPP, TRPML and the TRPV subfamilies. The TRPV subfamily consists of six members named, TRPV1-6. The TRPV1 channel is a vanilloid gated, nonselective cation channel.
The channel has sequence homology to the TRP family, and shares a similar predicted structure of six transmembrane domain (TM) with a pore loop between TM5 and TM6.1 TRPV1 is expressed predominantly in nociceptors and in sensory neurons.2,3
There is also evidence that deletion of the C-terminus causes a loss of sensitivity to any stimuli.7 Recent studies demonstrated involvement of TRPV1 in apoptosis where inhibition of the receptor prevented apoptosis.8,9
Species reactivity key:
Anti-Human TRPV1 (extracellular) Antibody (#ACC-334) is a highly specific antibody directed against an extracellular epitope of the human protein. The antibody can be used in western blot and flow cytometry applications.
This antibody is not recommended for rat and mouse samples.
