Data Sheet

Background: GPR55 is a putative cannabinoid receptor. Its gene was mapped to chromosome 2q37, using fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH), and its mRNA transcripts have been detected in the caudate nucleus and putamen. Recently, GPR55 was identified as a receptor for the bioactive lipid lysophosphatidylinositol (LPI).

Application: Functional assays

Figure Legend: Dose-dependent stimulation of calcium flux upon treatment with ligand, measured with MultiscreenTM Calcium 1.0 No Wash Assay Kit (Multispan MSCA01).
