Application Instructions

Application Suggestion
Tested Application Dilution
IHCfrozen sections: 1:1000 to 1:2000
Application Note Specific for the ~120k NR1 subunit of the NMDA Receptor containing the C2 splice variant insert. Does not recognize the NR1 subunits of the NMDA receptor that do not contain the C2 insert.
* The dilutions indicate recommended starting dilutions and the optimal dilutions or concentrations should be determined by the scientist.

Background The ion channels activated by glutamate that are sensitive to N-methyl-Daspartate (NMDA) are designated NMDA Receptors (NMDAR). The NMDAR plays an essential role in memory, neuronal development and it has also been implicated in several disorders of the central nervous system including Alzheimer’s, epilepsy and ischemic neuronal cell death (Grosshans et al., 2002; Wenthold et al., 2003; Carroll and Zukin, 2002). There are a number of different splice variants of the NR1 subunit (Foldes et al., 1994; Zukin and Bennett, 1995). Differential splicing of three exons in the NR1 subunit generates up to eight NR1 subunit splice variants and 7 of these have been identified in cDNA libraries. These exons encode a 21 amino acid N-terminal domain (N1) and adjacent sequences in the C-terminus (C1 and C2). Splicing out the C2 cassette eliminates the first stop codon and produces a new reading frame that generates a new sequence of 22 amino acids (C2'). Considerable attention has been focused on the distribution and expression of these splice variants that may affect the functional properties and regulation of the NMDAR. Anti-NMDAR, NR1

Calculated MW 105 kDa
PTM NMDA is probably regulated by C-terminal phosphorylation of an isoform of NR1 by PKC. Dephosphorylated on Ser-897 probably by protein phosphatase 2A (PPP2CB). Its phosphorylated state is influenced by the formation of the NMDAR-PPP2CB complex and the NMDAR channel activity.
