Description Antisera. CERN-JS858 and CERN-886 were elicited in rabbits against purified lipid-free bovine rhodopsin (for details Margry et al. 1983; Schalken and DeGrip 1986). These antisera are monospecific for rod opsin (Schalken 1987; Janssen 1991) and were used at a dilution of 1 : 1000-1 : 1600 Original description in "Opsin localization and chromophore retinoids identified within the basal brain of the lizard Anolis carolinensis" has no PMID and thus cannot be linked within Xenbase
Reported Usage
western blot 35kDa and 70kDa for Rhodopsin 50kDa for Melanopsin
