Antigen/Purification: ExpandCollapse

The antigen is a peptide corresponding to amino acid residues from the N-terminal region of rat Vesicular GABA Amino Acid Transporter (VGAT).

The antibody is prepared from rabbit serum by affinity purification on a column made with the peptide used as antigen.

Biological Significance: ExpandCollapse

The Vesicular GABA Amino Acid Transporter (VGAT) is responsible for transport of the inhibitory neurotransmitter into synaptic vesicles(McIntire et al., 1997). The VGAT protein (also known as the Vesicular Inhibitory Amino Aid Transporter or VIAAT) is expressed in synaptic vesicles of both glycine and GABAergic synapses throughout the CNS (Chaudhry et al., 1998). Expression of the VGAT protein changes during development and also in response to patterns of neuronal activity (De et al., 2005).
