Rat Glycine R Pan Specific Antibody

  
  • Species Reactivity
    Rat
  • Specificity
    Specific for the ~48 kDa alpha 1 and alpha 2 subunits of the Glycine Receptor in Western blots of rat spinal cord, brain stem and cell extracts. Immunolabeling is blocked by preadsorption of antibody with the peptide immunogen. This antibody does not recognize other Glycine Receptor subunits.
  • Source
    Polyclonal Rabbit IgG
  • Purification
    Antigen Affinity-purified
  • Immunogen
    Peptide from the N-terminus region of the alpha 1 subunit of the rat Glycine Receptor
  • Formulation
    Lyophilized in 5 mM ammonium bicarbonate
  • Label
    Unconjugated

Data Examples
Detection of Rat Glycine R by Western Blot. Western blot of 10 μg of rat spinal cord. As shown in the autoradiograph, the Anti-Glycine Receptor antibody is specific for the ~48 kDa subunits recognizing both the alpha 1 and alpha 2 subunits of the Glycine Receptor.
Preparation and Storage
  • Reconstitution
    This antibody should be reconstituted in 100 μL phosphate buffered saline (137 mM NaCl, 7.5 mM Na2HPO4, 2.7 mM KCl, 1.5 mM KH2PO4, pH 7.4) before use.
  • Shipping
    The product is shipped with polar packs. Upon receipt, store it immediately at the temperature recommended below.
  • Stability & Storage
    The lyophilized product is stable at ≤- 20° C for at least 1 year. After reconstitution the antibody should be aliquoted and stored at ≤ -20° C.
Background: Glycine R
The rat glycine receptor (GlyR) chloride channel is a member of the nicotinic acetylcho-line receptor family of ligand-gated ion channels. Its glycine-mediated activation results in an influx of chlorine ions that hyperpolarize and desensitize neuronal postsynaptic membranes. The receptor’s multimeric makeup is unclear. It may be either a three or five subunit homo- or heteromultimer. To date, there are five rat GlyR subunit types. Four are 48-53 kDa alpha -type subunits, and one is a 58 kDa beta -type subunit. Alternate splicing exists for alpha 1 and alpha 2 subunit types. Alpha-type subunits may form homotrimers; however, their function may not be neurotransmission but rather non-synaptic cell-cell communication. Alpha1-beta multimers may be the principal synaptic GlyR in adults.
