mGluR3 in Human Brain. mGluR3 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human brain (caudate nucleus) using Sheep Anti-Human mGluR3 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF4668) at 10 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the Anti-Sheep HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS019) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific labeling was localized to the plasma membrane and cytoplasm of neurons. View our protocol for Chromogenic IHC Staining of Paraffin-embedded Tissue Sections.

Metabotropic glutamate receptor 3 (mGluR3) is a 90-100 kDa, 7-transmembrane glycoprotein that belongs to group II of the C-family of G-protein coupled receptors. It is a presynaptic receptor expressed on both neurons and glia, whose activation reduces adenylate cyclase activity. Mature human mGluR3 is 857 amino acids in length and contains a 554 amino acid (aa) N-terminal extracellular domain (ECD) (aa 23-576). The ECD binds glutamate and forms homodimers. There is one alternative splice form that is soluble, 515 aa in length and shows a 96 aa substitution for aa 442-879. Over aa 25-507, human mGluR3 shares 97% aa sequence identity with mouse and rat mGluR3 and 67% aa sequence identity with hGluR2.
