Melatonin Receptor 1B Blocking Peptide Summary

Protein/Peptide Type
Blocking Peptide


Application Notes
The peptide can be used for blocking the binding of NLS932 to its target, Melatonin Receptor 1B. To block the specific antibody activity in immunohistochemistry analysis, pre-incubate the antibody with a 10-100X molar excess of peptide for 60 minutes at room temperature. Optimization of the molar ratio of antigen to antibody may be required. Centrifugation of the pre-adsorbed solution prior to addition to the slide may decrease background due to non-specific binding of large antibody-antigen complexes.

Packaging, Storage & Formulations

Store at -80C. Avoid freeze-thaw cycles.
PBS, pH 7.4
No Preservative

Melatonin receptor type 1B (MTNR1B) is a member of the G-protein coupled receptor 1 family. This family is responsible for translating external chemical signals across the cell membrane. MTNR1B is one of two high affinity receptors for melatonin, a hormone secreted by the pineal gland. Pertussis toxin sensitive G proteins, that inhibit adenylate cyclase activity, control the MTNR1B receptor. MTNR1B is expressed in the retina, and to a lesser extent the brain and hippocampus. MTNR1B is thought to regulate reproduction, the circadian cycle, and neurological melatonin levels; as well as participate in light dependent function in the retina. Post translational modifications that may affect MTNR1B are disulfide bonds and glycosylation.

Concentration Calculator

The concentration calculator allows you to quickly calculate the volume, mass or concentration of your vial. Simply enter your mass, volume, or concentration values for your reagent and the calculator will determine the rest.


Molarity Calculator

Calculate the mass, volume, or concentration required for a solution.

The molarity calculator is based on the following equation:

Mass (g) = Concentration (mol/L) x Volume (L) x Molecular Weight (g/mol)

As an example, if the molecular weight of a compound is 197.13 g/mol and the desired concentration is 10 mM for 10 ml of water based stock solution, the required mass would be = 19.713 (value determined by this calculator).
