mGluR5 in Human Brain. mGluR5 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human brain (cerebellum) using 25 µg/mL Mouse Anti-Human mGluR5 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB45141) overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained with the Anti-Mouse HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS002) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue).

Background: mGluR5

Human metabotropic glutamate receptor 5 (mGluR5; also known as mGluR5b) is a 150 kDa, 7-transmembrane glycoprotein that belongs to group I of the C-family of G-protein coupled receptors. mGluR5 is constitutively expressed and regulates neuronal ion channel activity. Human mGluR5 is 1212 amino acids (aa) in length and contains an N-terminal extracellular domain (ECD) of 558 aa. Through its ECD, mGluR5 either homodimerizes or heterodimerizes with the Ca++-sensor receptor. There is one alternate splice form (mGluR5a) that shows a 32 aa deletion between aa 877-908 in the cytoplasmic tail. Over aa 21-509, human mGluR5 shares 98% aa sequence identity with mouse, rat, and dog mGluR5.
