Application Instructions

Application Suggestion
Tested Application Dilution
Application Note Specific for the ~53k GABAA receptor β3 subunit phosphorylated at Ser408/409. Immunolabeling of the GABAA band is completely blocked by the phospho-peptide used as antigen but not by the corresponding dephospho-peptide.
* The dilutions indicate recommended starting dilutions and the optimal dilutions or concentrations should be determined by the scientist.

Background Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) is the primary inhibitory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system. There are two major classes of GABA receptors: the GABAA and the GABAB subtype of receptors. GABAA-Rs are important therapeutic targets for a range of sedative, anxiolytic, and hypnotic agents and are implicated in several diseases including epilepsy, anxiety, depression, and substance abuse. The GABAA-R is a multimeric subunit complex. To date six αs, four βs and four γs, plus alternative splicing variants of some of these subunits, have been identified (Olsen and Tobin, 1990; Whiting et al., 1999; Ogris et al., 2004). Injection in oocytes or mammalian cell lines of cRNA coding for α- and β-subunits results in the expression of functional GABAA-Rs sensitive to GABA. However, coexpression of a γ-subunit is required for benzodiazepine modulation. Phosphorylation of serine 408 and serine 409 within the β3 subunit have been shown to be critical for the functional modulation of β3 containing recombinant receptors (Brandon et al., 2000).
