Glycine Receptor Antibody

Affinity purified rabbit polyclonal antibody

  • FC - Glycine Receptor Antibody AN1046
    Flow cytometric analysis of Y79 cells using Glycine Receptor Antibody(green, Cat#AN1046) compared to an isotype control of rabbit IgG(blue). AN1046 was diluted at 1:1000 dilution. An Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-rabbit lgG at 1:400 dilution was used as the secondary antibody.
  • WB - Glycine Receptor Antibody AN1046
    Western blot of rat spinal cord showing specific immunolabeling of the ~48k α1- and α2-subunits of the glycine receptor. The labeling was absent from a rat hippocampal (hipp) lysate as the glycine receptor is not expressed in the hippocampus.

Additional Information
Gene ID 25674
Gene Name GLRA1
Other Names Glycine receptor subunit alpha-1, Glycine receptor 48 kDa subunit, Glycine receptor strychnine-binding subunit, Glra1, Glyr
Target/Specificity Synthetic peptide corresponding to amino acid residues from the N-terminal region conjugated to KLH.
Dilution FC~~1:1000
WB~~ 1:1000
Format Prepared from rabbit serum by affinity purification using a column to which the peptide immunogen was coupled.
Antibody Specificity Specific for the ~48k α1- and α2-subunits of the glycine receptor in Western blots of rat spinal cord and brain stem and in cell extracts. Immunolabeling blocked by preadsorption of antibody with the peptide immunogen. Does not recognize other glycinereceptor subunits.
StorageMaintain 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.
PrecautionsGlycine Receptor Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.

Glycine is an important inhibitory transmitter in the brainstem and spinal cord. Glycine receptors are members of the ligand-gated ion channel family (LGICs) that mediate rapid chemical neurotransmission (Schofield et al., 2003). The binding of glycine to its receptor produces a large increase in chloride conductance, which causes membrane hyperpolarization. Glycine receptors are anchored at inhibitory chemical synapses by a cytoplasmic protein, gephyrin (Fischer et al., 2000). The glycine receptor has been used to great advantage in the identification of the binding sites for alcohol on the LGIC family of proteins (Beckstead et al., 2001; Mihic et al., 1997). These receptors have also been extremely useful in studies of synaptic clustering of receptors (Craig and Lichtman, 2001). The glycine receptor may also act in concert with an NMDAR subunit to form an excitatory receptor (Chatterton et al., 2002).
