Broadly Distributed Receptors and Transporters
Classical endocrine transmission and highly specialized neuronal synapses rely on the same basic components, including specific ligand release, receptor binding and ligand transporters. Many of these receptors and transporters are cell type-specific, including a large list of neuronal specific species. Antibodies made against these types make excellent neuronal markers, and Millipore offers a large selection, listed in the "Reuptake Transporters" and "Postsynaptic Receptors" sections of this resource. Millipore offers many antibodies against neurohormone receptors and transporters broadly distributed in the brain and other organ systems.
