Our Anti-NMDA NR1 Subunit, Splice Variant C2' rabbit polyclonal primary antibody from PhosphoSolutions is produced in-house. It detects mouse and rat NMDA NR1 Subunit, Splice Variant C2' and is antigen affinity purified from pooled serum. It is great for use in WB, IHC.
Western blot of 10 µg of HEK 293 cells specific immunolabeling of the ~120 kDa NR1 subunit of the NMDA receptor containing the C2’ splice variant insert (lanes 3 and 4). 1) No NR1 expression; 2) NR1 subunit containing only the C2 Insert; 3) NR1 subunit containing the C1 and C2' Insert; 4) NR1 subunit containing the N1 and C2' Insert.
The NMDA receptor (NMDAR) plays an essential role in memory, neuronal development and it has also been implicated in several disorders of the central nervous system including Alzheimer’s, epilepsy and ischemic neuronal cell death (Grosshans et al., 2002; Wenthold et al., 2003; Carroll and Zukin, 2002). Increased membrane surface expression of the NMDAR, NR1-Subunit has been associated with synaptic plasticity (Grosshans et al., 2002). There are a number of different splice variants of the NR1-Subunit (Foldes et al., 1994; Zukin and Bennett, 1995). Differential splicing of three exons in the NR1-Subunit generates up to eight NR1-Subunit splice variants and 7 of these have been identified in cDNA libraries. These exons encode a 21 amino acid N-terminal domain (N1) and adjacent sequences in the C-terminus (C1 and C2). Splicing out the C2 cassette eliminates the first stop codon and produces a new reading frame that generates a new sequence of 22 amino acids (C2'). Considerable attention has been focused on the distribution and expression of these splice variants that may affect the functional properties and regulation of the NMDAR.
Antigen Affinity Purified from Pooled Serum
Synthetic peptide corresponding to amino acid residues specific to the NR1 subunit, C2' splice variant insert of the rat NMDA receptor, conjugated to keyhole limpet hemocyanin (KLH).
Reconstitute in 50 µl phosphate buffered saline (PBS: 137 mM NaCl, 7.5 mM Na2HPO4, 2.7 mM KCl, 1.5 mM KH2PO4, pH 7.4) before use. After reconstitution it is recommended that the undiluted antibody be aliquoted into smaller working volumes (10-30 uL/vial depending on usage) and stored long term at -20° C or -80° C, while keeping a working aliquot stored at 4° C for short term. Avoid freeze/thaw cycles. Stable for at least 1 year.
Prepared from pooled rabbit serum by affinity purification using a column to which the peptide immunogen was coupled.
WB Brain: 1:1000
IHC: 1:1000 - 1:2000
Specific for endogenous levels of the ~120 kDa NR1 subunit of the NMDA receptor containing the C2’ splice variant insert. Does not recognize the NR1 subunits of the NMDA receptor that do not contain the C2’ insert.
