The antigen is a peptide from the N-terminus region of the ?1-subunit of rat glycine receptor.

The antibody is prepared from pooled rabbit serum by affinity purification using a column to which the peptide immunogen was coupled.

Biological Significance: ExpandCollapse

Glycine is an important inhibitory transmitter in the brainstem and spinal cord. Glycine receptors are members of the ligand-gated ion channel family (LGICs) that mediate rapid chemical neurotransmission (Schofield et al., 2003). The binding of glycine to its receptor produces a large increase in chloride conductance, which causes membrane hyperpolarization. Glycine receptors are anchored at inhibitory chemical synapses by a cytoplasmic protein, gephyrin (Fischer et al., 2000). The glycine receptor has been used to great advantage in the identification of the binding sites for alcohol on the LGIC family of proteins (Beckstead et al., 2001; Mihic et al., 1997). These receptors have also been extremely useful in studies of synaptic clustering of receptors (Craig and Lichtman, 2001). The glycine receptor may also act in concert with an NMDAR subunit to form an excitatory receptor (Chatterton et al., 2002).

200 µg antibody vial; lyophilized from 5 mM ammonium bicarbonate. Adequate amount of material to conduct 10-mini Western Blots.

The antibody should be reconstituted 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.

Glycine Receptor Antibody
Western blot of rat spinal cord lysate (SC) showing specific immunolabeling of the ~48 kDa ?1- and ?2-subunits of the glycine receptor. Immunolabeling was absent from a rat hippocampal lysate (H), as the glycine receptor is not expressed in the hippocampus.
