Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded sections) of human kidney, renal tubules with TAAR6 polyclonal antibody (Cat # PAB27697). Immunohistochemistry of formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue after heat-induced antigen retrieval.
The TAAR6 (TRAR4) gene belongs to the trace amine receptor family. Trace amines are endogenous amine compounds that are chemically similar to classic biogenic amines like dopamine, norepinephrine, serotonin, and histamine. Trace amines were thought to be 'false transmitters' that displace classic biogenic amines from their storage and act on transporters in a fashion similar to the amphetamines, but the identification of brain receptors specific to trace amines indicates that they also have effects of their own (Duan et al., 2004 [PubMed 15329799]).[supplied by OMIM
