PA3-102 detects N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor type 1.
PA3-102 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 ~120 kDa protein representing NMDA receptor type 1.
The PA3-102 immunogen is a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues (195)N Y E N L D Q L S Y D N K R G P(210) C of Exon 5 of rat NMDA Receptor Type 1.
NMDA receptor subtype of glutamate-gated ion channels possesses high calcium permeability and voltage-dependent sensitivity to magnesium. Mediated by glycine. Plays a key role in synaptic plasticity, synaptogenesis, excitotoxicity, memory acquisition and learning. It mediates neuronal functions in glutamate neurotransmission. Is involved in the cell surface targeting of NMDA receptors. The ion channels activated by glutamate are divided into two classes. Those that are sensitive to N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) are designated NMDA receptors (NMDAR) while those activated by kainate and a-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxalone propionic acid (AMPA) are known as kainate/AMPA receptors (K/AMPAR). NMDA receptors are among the most studied receptors in neuroscience because they are involved in neuronal cell development and plasticity, a cellular correlate for learning.
