|Application ||FC, WB|
|Predicted||Bovine, Human, Monkey, Zebrafish|
|Calculated MW||102 KDa|
|Other Names||Metabotropic glutamate receptor 7, mGluR7, Grm7, Gprc1g, Mglur7|
|Target/Specificity||Synthetic phospho-peptide corresponding to amino acid residues surrounding Ser862 conjugated to KLH.|
|Format||Prepared from rabbit serum by affinity purification via sequential chromatography on phospho and dephospho-peptide columns.|
|Antibody Specificity||Specific for the ~102k mGluR7 protein phosphorylated at Ser862. Immunolabeling is blocked by preadsorption of antibody with the phospho-peptide used as antigen but not by the corresponding dephosphopeptide.|
|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 Ser862 mGluR7 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|

Metabotropic glutamate receptors (mGluRs) are key receptors in the modulation of excitatory synaptic transmission in the central nervous system. They are implicated in many forms of neural plasticity as well as learning and memory and drug abuse (Bhattacharya et al., 2004; Francesconi et al., 2004; Wilson and Nicoll, 2001). The mGluRs are divided into three groups based on sequence identity and pharmacological properties: group I (mGluR1 and mGluR5) are localized in the perisynaptic region of the postsynaptic membrane, whereas group II (mGlur2 and mGluR3) and group III (mGluR4,6,7 and 8) are localized predominantly at presynaptic terminals. PKC phosphorylation of serine 862 on mGluR7 has been shown to be critical for stabilizing receptor surface expression and promoting binding to the synaptic PDZ-domain-containing protein PICK1 (Suh et al., 2008).
