PA1-4732 detects Metabotropic Glutamate Receptor 2/3 from rat samples.
PA1-4732 has been successfully used in Western blot and immunohistochemistry applications. PA1-4732 is specific for the ~110k monomer and the ~220k dimer of mGluR2 and mGluR3 in western blots of rat brain.
The PA1-4732 immunogen is a synthetic peptide corresponding to a portion the C-terminus of rat Metabotropic Glutamate Receptor 2/3
L-glutamate is the major excitatory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system and activates both ionotropic and metabotropic glutamate receptors. Glutamatergic neurotransmission is involved in most aspects of normal brain function and can be perturbed in many neuropathologic conditions. The metabotropic glutamate receptors are a family of G protein-coupled receptors, that have been divided into 3 groups on the basis of sequence homology, putative signal transduction mechanisms, and pharmacologic properties. Group I includes GRM1 and GRM5 and these receptors have been shown to activate phospholipase C. Group II includes GRM2 and GRM3 while Group III includes GRM4, GRM6, GRM7 and GRM8. Group II and III receptors are linked to the inhibition of the cyclic AMP cascade but differ in their agonist selectivities. Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.
