Antibody Specifications

Immunohistology - Frozen, Western Blotting
Host Species:
Species Reactivity:

This product detects bands of approximately 125kDa (monomer) and 250kDa (dimer) on lysate from transfected HEK293 cells.

This antibody has also been reported to detect bands at approximately 120kDa (reduced) and 210kD (non-reduced), in protein extracts from adult rat cerebellum.


This product recognizes rat metabotropic glutamate receptor 1a (mGluR1a). The metabotropic glutamate receptors have been organised into three groups. mGluR5 and mGluR1 make up group I which, when activated, stimulates phospholipase C and activates protein kinase C to hydrolyse phosphoinositide phospholipids in the cell membrane. Group I mGluRs, but not other groups, are activated by 3, 5-dihydroxyphenylglycine (DHPG).


Store at +4 °C or at -20 °C if preferred.
Storage in frost-free freezers is not recommended.
This product should be stored undiluted. Avoid repeated freezing and thawing as this may denature the antibody. Should this product contain a precipitate we recommend microcentrifugation before use.
If stored in this manner, this product is stable for 18 months after receipt.
