This antibody is specific for the ~48 kDa alpha 1 and alpha 2 subunits of the Glycine Receptor in Western blots of rat spinal cord and brain stem and in cell extracts, and does not recognize other Glycine Receptor subunits. Immunolabeling is blocked by preadsorption of antibody with the peptide immunogen.
Reconstitute with 100 ul PBS.
The protein encoded by this gene is a subunit of a pentameric inhibitory glycine receptor. The receptor mediates postsynaptic inhibition in the central nervous system. Defects in this gene are a cause of startle disease (STHE), also known as hereditary hyperekplexia or congenital stiff-person syndrome. Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.
