ab94257 is a 293T cell transfected lysate in which Human Prolactin Receptor has been transiently over-expressed using a pCMV-Prolactin Receptor plasmid. The lysate is provided in 1X Sample Buffer. Note: For more details about how the transfected lysate was prepared view preparation notes
Function: This is a receptor for the anterior pituitary hormone prolactin (PRL). Isoform 4 is unable to transduce prolactin signaling. Isoform 6 is unable to transduce prolactin signaling.
Tissue specificity: Expressed in breast, placenta, kidney, liver and pancreas.
Similarity: Belongs to the type I cytokine receptor family. Type 1 subfamily.
Contains 2 fibronectin type-III domains.
Domain: The WSXWS motif appears to be necessary for proper protein folding and thereby efficient intracellular transport and cell-surface receptor binding.
The box 1 motif is required for JAK interaction and/or activation.
