Data Sheet

Background: The prostaglandin D2 receptor DP1 (DP or PTGDR) is a G protein- coupled receptor for the prostaglandin D2 (PGD2). PGD2 signals through DP2 (CRTH2) to induce TH2, eosinophil, and basophil chemotaxis in a Gαi-dependent manner. In contrast, signaling through DP1 is coupled to Gαs and does not induce chemotaxis.

Application: Functional assays

Figure 1. Dose-dependent stimulation of calcium flux upon treatment with ligand, monitored with FlexStation. Figure 2. Dose-dependent increase of intracellular cAMP level upon treatment with ligand, measured with cAMP HiRange kit (Cisbio 62AM6PEC). Figure 3. Receptor expression on cell surface measured by flow cytometry (FACS) using an anti-FLAG antibody. Thin line: parental cells; thick line: receptor-expressing cells.
