|Application ||WB, E|
|Other Accession||P63137, NP_068711.1, NP_000804.1|
|Calculated MW||59150 Da|
|Antigen Region||346-374 aa|
|Other Names||Gamma-aminobutyric acid receptor subunit beta-2, GABA(A) receptor subunit beta-2, GABRB2|
|Target/Specificity||This GABRB2 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 346-374 amino acids from the C-terminal region of human GAB_2.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is purified through a protein A column, followed by peptide affinity purification.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||GABRB2 Antibody (C-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Component of the heteropentameric receptor for GABA, the major inhibitory neurotransmitter in the vertebrate brain. Functions also as histamine receptor and mediates cellular responses to histamine. Functions as receptor for diazepines and various anesthetics, such as pentobarbital; these are bound at a separate allosteric effector binding site. Functions as ligand- gated chloride channel.|
|Cellular Location||Cell junction, synapse, postsynaptic cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Isoform 1 and isoform 2 show reduced expression in schizophrenic brain. Isoform 3 shows increased expression in schizophrenic and bipolar disorder brains while isoform 4 shows reduced expression.|

The gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) A receptor is a multisubunit chloride channel that mediates the fastest inhibitory synaptic transmission in the central nervous system. This gene encodes GABA A receptor, beta 2 subunit. It is mapped to chromosome 5q34 in a cluster comprised of genes encoding alpha 1 and gamma 2 subunits of the GABA A receptor. Alternative splicing of this gene generates 2 transcript variants, differing by a 114 bp insertion.
