Phospho-Ser327 GABAA Receptor, γ2 subunit Antibody

Affinity purified rabbit polyclonal antibody

  • FC - Phospho-Ser327 GABAA Receptor, γ2 subunit Antibody AN1162
    Flow cytometric analysis of PC-12 cells using Park7 (DJ-1) Antibody(green, Cat#AN1162) compared to an isotype control of rabbit IgG(blue). AN1162 was diluted at 1:500 dilution. An Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-rabbit lgG at 1:400 dilution was used as the secondary antibody.
  • WB - Phospho-Ser327 GABAA Receptor, γ2 subunit Antibody AN1162
    Western blot of rat cortex showing specific immunolabeling of the ~45k GABAA γ 2 protein phosphorylated at Ser327 (control). Immunolabeling is blocked by the phospho-peptide (peptide) used as antigen but not by the corresponding dephosphopeptide (not shown).

Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) is the primary inhibitory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system. There are two major classes of GABA receptors: the GABAA and the GABAB subtype of receptors. GABAA-Rs are important therapeutic targets for a range of sedative, anxiolytic, and hypnotic agents and are implicated in several diseases including epilepsy, anxiety, depression, and sub-stance abuse. The GABAA-R is a multimeric subunit complex. To date six αs, four βs and four γs, plus alternative splicing variants of some of these subunits, have been identified (Olsen and Tobin, 1990; Whiting et al., 1999; Ogris et al., 2004). Injection in oocytes or mammalian cell lines of cRNA coding for α- and β-subunits results in the expression of functional GABAA-Rs sensitive to GABA. However, coexpression of a γ-subunit is required for benzodiazepine modulation. It has recently been suggested that PKCΕ regulates the sensitivity of GABAA α1β2γ2 receptors to ethanol and benzodiazepines through phosphorylation of serine 327 in the large intracellular loop of γ2 (Qi et al., 2007)
