This antibody is specific for the ~180 kDa 2B subunit from rat, mouse and human.
Storage and reconstitution: when stored at -20°C or below, the lyophilized antibody should retain full activity for over one year. Reconstitute using 50 µL PBS, pH 7.4, to yield a 0.2 mg/mL solution. If storing at 0-4°C, add sodium azide to a final concentration of 2mM. For longer storage, divide the solution into aliquots and freeze at -20°C, avoiding freeze/thaw cycles.
N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors are a class of ionotropic glutamate receptors. NMDA receptor channel has been shown to be involved in long-term potentiation, an activity-dependent increase in the efficiency of synaptic transmission thought to underlie certain kinds of memory and learning. NMDA receptor channels are heteromers composed of three different subunits: NR1 (GRIN1), NR2 (GRIN2A, GRIN2B, GRIN2C, or GRIN2D) and NR3 (GRIN3A or GRIN3B). The NR2 subunit acts as the agonist binding site for glutamate. This receptor is the predominant excitatory neurotransmitter receptor in the mammalian brain.
