|Other Names||Glutamate receptor ionotropic, delta-2, GluD2, GluR delta-2 subunit, GRID2, GLURD2|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP13471b was selected from the C-term region of GRID2. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Receptor for glutamate. L-glutamate acts as an excitatory neurotransmitter at many synapses in the central nervous system. The postsynaptic actions of Glu are mediated by a variety of receptors that are named according to their selective agonists.|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. Cell junction, synapse, postsynaptic cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein|

Human glutamate receptor delta-2 (GRID2) is a relativelynew member of the family of ionotropic glutamate receptors whichare the predominant excitatory neurotransmitter receptors in themammalian brain. GRID2 is a predicted 1,007 amino acid proteinthat shares 97% identity with the mouse homolog which is expressedselectively in cerebellar Purkinje cells. A point mutation inmouse GRID2, associated with the phenotype named 'lurcher', in theheterozygous state leads to ataxia resulting from selective,cell-autonomous apoptosis of cerebellar Purkinje cells duringpostnatal development. Mice homozygous for this mutation dieshortly after birth from massive loss of mid- and hindbrain neuronsduring late embryogenesis. This strongly suggests a role for GRID2in neuronal apoptotic death.
