Application Instructions

Application Suggestion
Tested Application Dilution
Application Note Specific for ~180k NMDAR NR2B subunit protein phosphorylated at Tyr1252. Immunolabeling of the NMDA NR2B subunit band is blocked by the phosphopeptide used as the antigen but not by the corresponding dephosphopeptide. Immunolabeling is also blocked by λ-phosphatase treatment. The antibody may also show some slight reactivity with Tyr1246 of NR2A.
* The dilutions indicate recommended starting dilutions and the optimal dilutions or concentrations should be determined by the scientist.


Form Liquid
Purification Affinity Purified
Buffer 10 mM HEPES (pH 7.5), 150 mM NaCl, 0.1 mg/ml BSA and 50% Glycerol
Stabilizer 0.1 mg/ml BSA, 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.

Background The NMDA receptor (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 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 (Ishii et al., 1993). Phosphorylation of Tyr1252 is thought to potentiate NMDA receptordependent influx of calcium (Takasu et al., 2002).
