Cat. No. 191-0P 100 µg protein, lyophilized. For reconstitution add 100 µl H2O to get a 1mg/ml solution in TBS. Then aliquot and store at -20°C to -80°C until use.
Control proteins should be stored at +4°C when still lyophilized. Do not freeze!
Immunogen Recombinant protein corresponding to residues near the carboxy terminus of mouse mGluR1-α (UniProt Id: P97772)
Recommended dilution Optimal concentrations should be determined by the end-user.

This control protein consists of the recombinant protein (aa 1092 - 1199 in mouse mGluR1) that has been used for immunization. It has been tested in preadsorption experiments and blocks efficiently and specifically the corresponding signal in Western blots. The amount of protein needed for efficient blocking depends on the titer and on the affinity of the antibody to the antigen.

Glutamate is the main excitatory neurotransmitter in the vertebrate nervous system and regulates a number of cellular signaling pathways. In addition to the ionotropic glutamate receptors of the NMDA, AMPA and kainate type, eight metabotropic receptors (mGluR1 - 8) have been described so far (1). This receptor family can be subdivided into three groups (2): Group I receptors (mGluR1, mGluR5) are activated by dihydroxyphenylglycine (DHPG) (3), group II receptors (mGluR2, mGluR3) by dicarboxycyclopropylglycine (DCG-IV), and group III receptors (mGluR4, mGluR6, mGluR7, mGluR8) by aminophosphonobutyrate (L-AP4) (4).
