    Scientific background

    The P2Y receptors belong to the G-protein coupled receptor superfamily. They mediate the actions of the extracellular nucleotides (ATP, ADP, UTP and UDPA). Eight functional mammalian P2Y receptors have been described: P2Y1P2Y2P2Y4P2Y6P2Y11P2Y12P2Y13, and the UDP-glucose receptor, now renamed P2Y141-3

    The P2Y12 receptor is co-expressed with the P2Y1 receptor on platelets leading to shape change, aggregation, and rise in intracellular Ca2+ upon activation.

    The only other expression of P2Y12 was found in brain, according to results of reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction and northern blotting4. The P2Y12 receptor has become a target for potential therapeutic drugs for the treatment of thromboembolism and other clotting disorders4.

    Anti-P2Y12 Receptor (extracellular) Antibody (#APR-020) is a highly specific antibody directed against an extracellular epitope of the human P2RY12. The antibody can be used in western blot, live cell imaging and indirect flow cytometry applications. It has been designed to recognize P2RY12 from human, rat and mouse samples.
