|Predicted||Chicken, Human, Mouse|
|Calculated MW||100 KDa|
|Other Names||Glutamate receptor 1, GluR-1, AMPA-selective glutamate receptor 1, GluR-A, GluR-K1, Glutamate receptor ionotropic, AMPA 1, GluA1, Gria1, Glur1|
|Target/Specificity||Synthetic phospho-peptide corresponding to amino acid residues surrounding Ser831 conjugated to KLH.|
|Format||Prepared from rabbit serum by affinity purification via sequential chromatography on phospho- and dephosphopeptide affinity columns.|
|Antibody Specificity||Specific for the ~100k GluR1 protein phosphorylated at Ser831. Immunolabeling is blocked by the phosphopeptide used as antigen but not by the corresponding dephosphopeptide. Immunolabeling is completely eliminated by λ-phosphatase treatment.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||Phospho-Ser831 GluR1 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|

The ion channels activated by glutamate are typically divided into two classes. Those that are sensitive to N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) are designated NMDA receptors (NMDAR) while those activated by α-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxalone propionic acid (AMPA) are known as AMPA receptors (AMPAR). The AMPAR are comprised of four distinct glutamate receptor subunits designated (GluR1-4) and they play key roles in virtually all excitatory neurotransmission in the brain (Keinänen et al., 1990; Hollmann and Heinemann, 1994). The GluR1 subunit is widely expressed throughout the nervous system. GluR1 is potentiated by phosphorylation at Ser831 which has been shown to be mediated by either PKC or CaM kinase II (McGlade-McCulloh et al., 1993; Mammen et al., 1999; Roche et al., 1996). In addition, phosphorylation of this site has been linked to synaptic plasticity as well s learning and memory (Soderling and Derkach, 2000).
