A. Sections were incubated with Anti-NMDA Receptor 2A (GluN2A) (extracellular) antibody, followed by goat anti-rabbit-Alexa-488 (green). B. The same sections were incubated with Anti-NMDA Receptor 2B (GluN2B) (extracellular)-ATTO-594 antibody (red). C. Merge of A and B demonstrates the ubiquitous colocalization of the GluN2A and GluN2B subunits in cells with neuronal profiles in this nucleus.  Arrows point at an example of NR2A and NR2B co-expression.

    Expression of NMDA Receptor 2A in rat hippocampus Immunohistochemical staining of  rat hippocampal dentate gyrus with Anti-NMDA Receptor 2A (GluN2A) (extracellular) antibody (#AG1266). A. NMDA Receptor 2A (green) appears diffusely in the outer molecular layer of the dentate gyrus (Out Mol.) and in cells along the subgranular layer (arrows). B. Staining of parvalbumin (PV, red) identifies interneurons in the dentate gyrus. C. Confocal merge demonstrates localization of PV in some neurons with NMDA Receptor 2A.
  • ICC - NMDA Receptor 2A (NR2A) (extracellular) Antibody AG1266-025
    Expression of NMDA Receptor 2A in rat C6 glioma cells Immunocytochemical staining of live intact rat C6 glioma cells.
    A. Cells were stained with Anti-NMDA Receptor 2A (GluN2A) (extracellular) antibody (#AG1266), (1:100), followed by goat anti-rabbit-AlexaFluor-555 secondary antibody (red). Cell nuclei were stained with the cell permeable dye Hoechst 33342 (blue staining). B. Live view of the same field.

The NMDA receptors are members of the glutamate receptor family of ion channels that also include the AMPA and Kainate receptors.   The NMDA receptors are encoded by seven genes: one NMDAR1 (or NR1) subunit, four NR2 (NR2A-NR2D) and two NR3 (NR3A-NR3B) subunits. The functional NMDA receptor appears to be a heterotetramer composed of two NMDAR1 and two NMDAR2 subunits. Whereas the NMDAR2 subunits that assemble with the NMDAR1 subunit can be either of the same kind (i.e. two NMDAR2A subunits) or different (one NMDAR2A with one NMDAR2B). NMDAR3 subunits can substitute the NMDAR2 subunits in their complex with the NMDAR1 subunit.   The NMDAR is unique among ligand-gated ion channels in that it requires the simultaneous binding of two obligatory agonists: glycine and glutamate that bind to the NMDAR1 and NMDAR2 binding sites respectively. Another unique characteristic of the NMDA receptors is their dependence on membrane potential. At resting membrane potentials the channels are blocked by extracellular Mg2+. Neuronal depolarization relieves the Mg2+ blockage and allows ion influx into the cells. NMDA receptors are strongly selective for Ca2+ influx differing from the other glutamate receptor ion channels that are non-selective cation channels.   Ca2+ entry through the NMDAR regulates numerous downstream signaling pathways including long term potentiation (a molecular model of memory) and synaptic plasticity that may underlie learning. In addition, the NMDA receptors have been implicated in a variety of neurological disorders including epilepsy, ischemic brain damage, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease.   NMDA receptors expression and function are modulated by a variety of factors including receptor trafficking to the synapses and internalization as well as phosphorylation and interaction with other intracellular proteins.
