Detection of RAMP2 in bEnd.3 Mouse Cell Line by Flow Cytometry. bEnd.3 mouse endothelioma cell line was stained with Rat Anti-Mouse RAMP2 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB6500, filled histogram) or isotype control antibody (Catalog # MAB006, open histogram), followed by Allophycocyanin-conjugated Anti-Rat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # F0113).
RAMP2 in Mouse Lung. RAMP2 was detected in perfusion fixed frozen sections of mouse lung using Rat Anti-Mouse RAMP2 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB6500) at 25 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Rat IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL013) and counterstained with DAPI (blue). Specific staining was localized to epithelial cells. View our protocol for Fluorescent IHC Staining of Frozen Tissue Sections.

RAMP2 (receptor activity modifying protein 2) is a 20 kDa member of the RAMP family of proteins. It is expressed on cardiomyocytes, vascular smooth muscle cells and endothelium and interacts with CRLR to form a receptor complex for adrenomedullin (AM). AM induces vasodilation on AM1 receptor expressing cells. Mature mouse RAMP2 is a 145 amino acid (aa) type I transmembrane glycoprotein that contains a 115 aa extracellular domain (ECD) (aa 45-159) and a nine aa cytoplasmic region. Although the ECD contains no typical structural motifs, based on human, aa 100-106 are critical for AM binding. Over aa 45-159, mouse RAMP2 shares 57% and 83% aa identity with human and rat RAMP2, respectively.
