The antigen is a fusion protein from the cytoplasmic loop of the ?2-subunit of rat nAChR.

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

Biological Significance: ExpandCollapse

Nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs) are ionotropic, cholinergic receptors that are divided into 2 types; muscle type and neuronal type. Neuronal nAChRs are pentameric ion channels consisting of 5 identical (homopentamers) or different (heteropentamers) subunits. Heteropentameric neuronal nAChRs mediate fast synaptic transmission in the autonomic nervous system. The predominant hetero-oligomeric nAChR in the CNS contain the subunits ?4?2, whereas ?3?4 prevail in the PNS. However, the expression of these subunits varies not only by region but also during development (Scholze et al 2011). In the brain, ?2-containing receptors greatly outnumber receptors that contain ?4 (McGehee & Role, 1995; Albuquerque et al., 2009), and in most brain regions, targeted deletion of the ?2 subunit virtually abolishes [3H]-epibatidine binding and receptor autoradiography (Zoli et al., 1998) due to the absence of a ? subunit required to form functional nAChRs (Champtiaux & Changeux, 2004).

100 µl in 10 mM HEPES (pH 7.5), 150 mM NaCl, 100 µg per ml BSA and 50% glycerol. Adequate amount of material to conduct 10-mini Western Blots.

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.
