Prolactin receptor is a class 1 cytokine transmembrane receptor that varies in size with tissue source and species. It consists of an extracellular region with 5 cysteines which contains the prolactin binding site, a single transmembrane domain and a cytoplasmic region. The extracellular domain is expressed recombinantly and purified by chromatography. 95 percent pure by SDS-PAGE and biologically active. Add deionized water to original volume, aliquot and freeze unused portion.
