Species cross-reactivity is determined by western blot.

Applications Key: W=Western Blotting, IP=Immunoprecipitation,


Species predicted to react based on 100% sequence homology: Human,

Specificity / Sensitivity

Rhodopsin (D1N7X) Rabbit mAb recognizes endogenous levels of total rhodopsin protein.

Source / Purification

Monoclonal antibody is produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues near the amino terminus of human rhodopsin protein.

Western Blotting

Western Blotting

Western blot analysis of extracts from mouse eye, mouse lung, and rat eye using Rhodopsin (D1N7X) Rabbit mAb (upper) and β-Actin (D6A8) Rabbit mAb #8457 (lower).



Immunoprecipitation of rhodopsin from mouse eye extracts. Lane 1 is 10% input, lane 2 is Rabbit (DA1E) mAb IgG XP® Isotype Control #3900, and lane 3 is Rhodopsin (D1N7X) Rabbit mAb. Western blot analysis was performed using Rhodopsin (D1N7X) Rabbit mAb.


Rhodopsin is the photoreceptor in the retinal rods. It is activated by photons, transduces visual information through its cognate G protein, transducin, and is inactivated by arrestin binding (1). Using atomic-force microscopy, rhodopsin was found to be arranged into paracrystalline arrays of dimers in mouse disc membranes (2). Rhodopsin is considered to be the prototype of G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs), and is the first GPCR for which a crystal structure was solved (3). Research studies have linked mutations in the gene encoding rhodopsin to retinitis pigmentosa (4,5), a disease characterized by retinal degeneration resulting in reduced peripheral vision and night blindness (6).
