Background: LPAR1/LPA1/EDG-2

Edg2, a Lysophospholipid/Lysosphingolipid Receptor, mediates growth factor-like activities such as proliferation, platelet aggregation, and chemotaxis. Edg2 is involved in myelin formation or maintenance. It is activated by platelet-derived lysophosphatidic acid (LPA), a lipid metabolite present in serum that acts ubiquitously. Although alternate translation start codons and polyadenylation sites have been reported, the alternative splicing transcripts each encode identical proteins. Edg2 has been reported in most human tissues, and is especially abundant in brain cortical regions. ESTs have been isolated from bone, brain, breast, connective tissue, embryo, heart/melanocyte/uterus, lung, prostate, and uterus libraries.

Immunohistochemistry Protocol for EDG2 Antibody (NLS212):

1. Prepare tissue with formalin fixation and by embedding it in paraffin wax.
2. Make 4 um sections and place on pre-cleaned and charged microscope slides.
3. Heat in a tissue-drying oven for 45 minutes @ 60 degrees Celcius.
4. Deparaffinize the tissues by wash drying the slides in 3 changes of xylene for 5 minutes each @ RT.
5. Rehydrate the tissues by washing the slides in 3 changes of 100% alcohol for 3 minutes each @ RT.
6. Wash the slides in 2 changes of 95% alcohol for 3 minutes each @ RT.
7. Wash the slides in 1 change of 80% alcohol for 3 minutes @ RT.
8. Rinse the slides in gentle running distilled water for 5 minutes @ RT.
9. Perform antigen retrieval by steaming the slides in 0.01M sodium citrate buffer (pH 6.0) @ 99-100 degrees Celcius
for 20 minutes.
10. Remove the slides from the heat and let stand in buffer @ RT for 20 minutes.
11. Rinse the slides in 1X TBS-T for 1 minute @ RT.

**Do not allow the tissues to dry at any time during the staining procedure**

12. Begin the immunostaining by applying a universal protein block for 20 minutes @ RT.
13. Drain protein block from the slides and apply the diluted primary antibody for 45 minutes @ RT.
14. Rinse the slide in 1X TBS-T for 1 minute @ RT.
15. Apply a biotinylated anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) secondary for 30 minutes @ RT.
16. Rinse the slide in 1X TBS-T for 1 minute @ RT.
17. Apply an alkaline phosphatase steptavidin for 30 minutes @ RT.
18. Rinse the slide in 1X TBS-T for 1 minute @ RT.
19. Apply an alkaline phosphatase chromagen substrate for 30 minutes @ RT.
20. Rinse the slide in distilled water for 1 minute @ RT.

**This method should only be used if the chromagen substrate is alcohol insoluble (ie: Vector Red, DAB)**

21. Dehydrate the tissue by washing the slides in 2 changes of 80% alcohol for 1 minute each @ RT.
22. Wash the slides in 2 changes of 95% alcohol for 1 minute each @ RT.
23. Wash the slides in 3 changes of 100% alcohol for 1 minute each @ RT.
24. Wash the slides in 3 changes of xylene for 1 minute each @ RT.
25. Apply cover slip.
