|BV-ADRA2C™ is a recombinant baculovirus which provides for expression of untagged human alpha-2C-adrenergic receptor (Acc# NP_000674).|
|Official alpha-2C-adrenergic receptor symbol: ADRA2C. Other Aliases: ADRA2L2, ADRA2RL2, ADRARL2, ALPHA2CAR.|
|A PCR fragment encoding alpha-2C-adrenergic receptor was obtained from a human cDNA library and inserted into pVL1393 vector under control of a very strong polyhedrin promoter. All of the insert and insert/vector junctions were sequenced and the recombinant baculovirus was constructed using ProEasy™technology, which ensures generation of 100% pure recombinant baculovirus stocks.||
Note that the alpha-2C-adrenergic receptor sequence encoded in BV-ADRA1A™ differs from the canonical sequence in that it contains GAGP deletion after Q321 which is a known polymorphism (Acc# AY455666).
