      Background InformationNMDA receptors are a class of ionotropic glutamate receptors. NMDA receptor channel has been shown to be involved in long term potentiation, an activity dependent increase in the efficiency of synaptic transmission thought to underlie certain kinds of memory and learning. NMDA receptor channels are heteromers composed of the key receptor subunit NMDAR1 (GRIN1) and 1 or more of the 4 NMDAR2 subunits: NMDAR2A (GRIN2A), NMDAR2B (GRIN2B), NMDAR2C (GRIN2C), and NMDAR2D (GRIN2D). GRIN2B may be a candidate gene for the neurodegenerative disorder dentato-rubro-pallidoluysian atrophy (DRPLA).
      Properties of NMDAR include modulation by glycine, inhibition by Zn2+, voltage dependent Mg2+ blockade and high Ca2+ permeability. The involvement of NMDAR in the CNS has become a focus area for neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's disease and also epilepsy and ischemic neuronal cell death.

      Key Applications
      • Immunohistochemistry
      • Immunoprecipitation
      • Western Blotting
      Application NotesImmunohistochemistry:
      1:1,000-1:2,000 dilution of a previous lot was used on immunohistochemistry.

      3 μL of a previous lot of this antibody (under appropriate conditions) quantitatively immunoprecipitated all NMDAR2B in 200 μg of rat brain.

      Western Blot Analysis:
      1:100-1:2,000 dilution of a previous lot (NMDAR2B is present in high concentrations in the hippocampus).

      Optimal working dilutions must be determined by the end user.
      Biological Information
      ImmunogenC-Terminal Fusion Protein of the NMDAR2B (30 kDa).
      ConcentrationPlease refer to the Certificate of Analysis for the lot-specific concentration.
      SpecificityNMDAR2B. Strong and specific immunolabeling of the 180 kDa NMDAR2B subunit of the NMDA receptor. No reactivity to NMDAR2A or NMDAR2C by Western blot. Immunolabeling has been blocked by preadsorption of the antibody with the C-terminal fusion protein that was used to generate the antibody.

      Entrez Gene Number
      Entrez Gene SummaryN-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors are a class of ionotropic glutamate receptors. NMDA receptor channel has been shown to be involved in long-term potentiation, an activity-dependent increase in the efficiency of synaptic transmission thought to underlie certain kinds of memory and learning. NMDA receptor channels are heteromers composed of three different subunits: NR1 (GRIN1), NR2 (GRIN2A, GRIN2B, GRIN2C, or GRIN2D) and NR3 (GRIN3A or GRIN3B). The NR2 subunit acts as the agonist binding site for glutamate. This receptor is the predominant excitatory neurotransmitter receptor in the mammalian brain.

      UniProt Number
      UniProt SummaryFUNCTION: SwissProt: Q13224 # NMDA receptor subtype of glutamate-gated ion channels with high calcium permeability and voltage-dependent sensitivity to magnesium. Mediated by glycine.
      SIZE: 1484 amino acids; 166367 Da
      SUBUNIT: Forms heteromeric channel of a zeta subunit (GRIN1), a epsilon subunit (GRIN2A, GRIN2B, GRIN2C or GRIN2D) and a third subunit (GRIN3A or GRIN3B).
