Article Title: Role of α2-Adrenoceptor Subtypes in Suppression of L-Type Ca2+ Current in Mouse Cardiac Myocytes
Figure Lengend Snippet: The mRNA and protein expression levels of the α2-AR isoforms in the mouse left ventricle. ( a ) mRNA expression of the α2 adrenoceptor genes obtained using the RT-qPCR assay. In contrast to adra2B and adrs2C genes the expression of adra2A was not detected (ND). ( b ) Western blots confirmed the expression of α2B and α2C but not α2A receptor proteins in the mouse left ventricular tissue.
Article Snippet: Western BlotProteins were separated in 10% SDS-PAGE, transferred to nitrocellulose membranes (sc-3724, 0.45 µm, Santa Cruz Biotechnology) and probed with antibodies against α2A (AAR-020, Alomone labs, lot AAR020AN0202), α2B (AAR-021, Alomone labs, lot AAR021AN0202) and α2C (ab46536, Abcam) diluted to 1:100.
