PA3-104 detects N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor type 2B.
PA3-104 has been used successfully in Western blot, ELISA, immunoprecipitation, immunohistochemistry, and immunocytochemistry procedures. In Western blot analysis of rat brain synaptic membranes this antibody detects a ~180 kDa protein representing NMDA receptor type 2B.
The PA3-104 immunogen is a synthetic phosphopeptide corresponding to residues C P(1114) R S P D H K R Y(p) F(1123) of rat NMDA receptor 2B.
The ion channels activated by glutamate that are sensitive to N-methyl-D-aspartate (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 and quote;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 rat NMDAR1 (NR1) was the first subunit of the NMDAR to be clonedand it 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. Overexpression of the NR2B-subunit of the NMDA receptor has been associated with increases in learning and memory while aged, memory impaired animals have deficiencies in NR2B expression (Clayton et al., 2002a; Clayton et al., 2002b). The NMDAR is also potentiated by protein phosphorylation (Lu et al., 1999).
