This antibody is predicted to react with chicken, mouse and rat based on sequence homology.
Heat-mediated antigen retrieval is recommended prior to staining, using a 10mM citrate buffer, pH 6.0, for 10 minutes followed by cooling at room temperature for 20 min. Following antigen retrieval, incubate samples with primary antibody for 10 min at room temperature. A suggested positive control is brain tissue.
GluR1 (glutamate receptor 1) is an ionotropic glutamate receptor. L-glutamate acts as an excitatory neurotransmitter at many synapses in the central nervous system. Binding of the excitatory neurotransmitter, L-glutamate, induces a conformation change that leads to the opening of the cation channel and converts the chemical signal to an electrical impulse. Then, the receptor desensitizes rapidly and enters a transiet inactive state characterized by the presence of a bound agonist. In the presence of CACNG4, CACNG7, or CACNG8 GluR1 shows resensitization which is characterized by a delayed accumulation of current flux upon continued application of glutamate.
