|BV-HTR2B™ is a recombinant baculovirus which provides for expression of untagged human 5-hydroxytryptamine (serotonin) receptor 2B (Acc# NP_000858).|
|Official 5-hydroxytryptamine (serotonin) receptor 2B symbol: HTR2B. Other Aliases: 5-HT(2B), 5-HT2B.|
|A PCR fragment encoding 5-hydroxytryptamine (serotonin) receptor 2B 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 5-hydroxytryptamine (serotonin) receptor 2B sequence encoded in BV-HTR2B™ differs from the canonical sequence in that it contains R477Q substitution which is a known polymorphism.
