Application Instructions

Application Suggestion
Tested Application Dilution
IHC-Fr1:1000 - 1:2000
Application Note Specific for the ~180k NR2A subunit of the NMDA receptor. Recognizes human, mouse and Rat forms of the NR2A subunit of NMDAR. No reactivity towards the NR2B and NR2C subunits. Immunolabeling is blocked by pre-adsorption of antibody with the fusion protein used to geneRate the antibody.
* The dilutions indicate recommended starting dilutions and the optimal dilutions or concentrations should be determined by the scientist.


Form Liquid
Purification Affinity purification with immunogen.
Buffer 10 mM HEPES (pH 7.5), 150 mM NaCl, 100 µg BSA per ml and 50% Glycerol
Stabilizer 100 µg BSA per ml, 50% Glycerol
Storage Instruction For continuous use, store undiluted antibody at 2-8°C for up to a week. For long-term storage, aliquot and store at -20°C. Storage in frost free freezers is not recommended. Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles. Suggest spin the vial prior to opening. The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.

Gene Full Name glutamate receptor, ionotropic, N-methyl D-aspartate 2A
Background The ion channels activated by glutamate are typically divided into two classes. Glutamate receptors that are activated by kainate and α-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxalone propionic acid (AMPA) are known as kainate/AMPA receptors (K/AMPAR). Those 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). The NMDA receptor is also one of the principal molecular targets for alcohol in the CNS (Lovinger et al., 1989; Alvestad et al., 2003; Snell et al., 1996). The NMDAR is also potentiated by protein phosphorylation (Lu et al., 1999). The rat NMDAR1 (NR1) was the first subunit of the NMDAR to be cloned. The NR1 protein can form NMDA activated channels when expressed in Xenopus oocytes but the currents in such channels are much smaller than those seen in situ. Channels with more physiological characteristics are produced when the NR1 subunit is combined with one or more of the NMDAR2 (NR2 A-D) subunits
