Application Instructions

Application Suggestion
Tested Application Dilution
IHCfrozen sections: 1:100
Application Note Specific for the ~48k α1- and α2-subunits of the glycine receptor in Western blots of Rat spinal cord and brain stem and in cell extracts. Immunolabeling blocked by preadsorption of antibody with the peptide immunogen. Does not recognize other glycine receptor subunits.
* The dilutions indicate recommended starting dilutions and the optimal dilutions or concentrations should be determined by the scientist.

Background 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).
