Our Anti-NMDA NR2A Subunit (Tyr1325) rabbit polyclonal phosphospecific primary antibody from PhosphoSolutions is produced in-house. It detects human, mouse, and rat NMDA NR2A Subunit (Tyr1325) and is antigen affinity purified from pooled serum. It is great for use in WB.
Western blot of rat hippocampal lysate showing specific immunolabeling of the ~180 kDa NR2A subunit of the NMDAR phosphorylated at Tyr1325 in the first lane (-). Phosphospecificity is shown in the second lane (+) where immunolabeling is completely eliminated by lysate treatment with lambda phosphatase (400 units/100uL lysate for 30 min).
Anti-NMDA NR2A Subunit (Tyr1325) Antibody
NMDA NR2A Subunit (Tyr1325)
The ion channels activated by glutamate that are sensitive to N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) are designated NMDA receptors (NMDAR). The 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). The NMDA receptor is also one of the principal molecular targets for alcohol in the CNS (Lovinger et al., 1989; Alvestad et al., 2003; Snell et al., 1996). Channels with physiological characteristics are produced when the NR1 subunit is combined with one or more of the NMDAR2 (NR2 A-D) subunits (Ishii et al., 1993). Recently, phosphorylation of Tyrosine 1325 of the NR2A subunit has been shown to be increased in human brain tissue sections from HIV-infected individuals with encephalitis (King et al., 2010). In addition, Tyr-1325 phosphorylation has been linked with depression-related behavior (Taniguchi et al., 2009).
Antigen Affinity Purified from Pooled Serum
Synthetic phospho-peptide corresponding to amino acid residues surrounding Tyr1325 of the rat NMDA receptor, conjugated to keyhole limpet hemocyanin (KLH).
Bovine, Canine, Hamster, Sheep
Storage at -20°C is recommended, as aliquots may be taken without freeze/thawing due to presence of 50% glycerol. Stable for at least 1 year at -20°C.
Prepared from pooled rabbit serum by affinity purification via sequential chromatography on phospho and non-phosphopeptide affinity columns.
10 mM HEPES (pH 7.5), 150 mM NaCl, 100 µg per ml BSA and 50% glycerol.
