GPR12 in Human Brain. GPR12 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human brain using Mouse Anti-Human GPR12 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB6738) at 25 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the Anti-Mouse HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS002) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to cytoplasm.

GPR12 is a 7-transmembrane receptor for sphingosylphosphorylcholine. Human GPR12 and the related GPR3 and GPR6 are all highly expressed on neurons of the central nervous system, while GPR12 is particularly expressed in the limbic system. GPR12 engagement promotes proliferation and maturation of postmitotic neurons through an inhibitory G protein and cAMP signaling pathway. Human GPR12 cDNA encodes 334 amino acids (aa), 89 of which are extracellular; these share 86% aa identity with mouse and rat GPR12.
