P2X7R, also known as P2X7 receptor, belongs to the family of ligand-gated ion channel receptors. It is expressed on T cells, B cells, macrophages, and microglia. The receptor opens in the presence of extracellular ATP or NAD, leading to intracellular calcium mobilization. P2X7R activation requires higher concentrations of ATP compared to other P2X receptors. Longer stimulation results in larger pores, allowing passage of larger molecules. Activation of these molecules also leads to mitochondrial and cytoskeletal changes as well as IL-1β maturation and release. Ligation of P2X7 receptor can lead to membrane blebbing and cell death.Product Details

FC - Quality tested
- Recommended Usage
Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by immunofluorescent staining with flow cytometric analysis. For flow cytometric staining, the suggested use of this reagent is ≤ 1.0 µg per million cells in 100 µl volume. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.
* PerCP/Cyanine5.5 has a maximum absorption of 482 nm and a maximum emission of 690 nm.
- Excitation Laser
Blue Laser (488 nm)
- Application Notes
Additional reported applications for the relevant formats include: immunoprecipitation1, Western blotting1, immunohistochemistry1, in vivo inhibition of intestinal inflammation and mast cell activation1.
- Additional Product Notes
- BioLegend is in the process of converting the name PerCP/Cy5.5 to PerCP/Cyanine5.5. The dye molecule remains the same, so you should expect the same quality and performance from our PerCP/Cyanine5.5 products. Contact Technical Service if you have any questions.
