Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab16703 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
IHC-P Use at an assay dependent concentration. PubMed: 18539546
WB 1/1000. Predicted molecular weight: 53 kDa.
IP Use at an assay dependent concentration. Use at an assay dependent dilution. 15 ug of antibody were used to IP 24% of all GABA-A receptors in dodecylsulfate extracts of rat forebrains (150 ul).


  • Function
    GABA, the major inhibitory neurotransmitter in the vertebrate brain, mediates neuronal inhibition by binding to the GABA/benzodiazepine receptor and opening an integral chloride channel.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the ligand-gated ion channel (TC 1.A.9) family. Gamma-aminobutyric acid receptor (TC 1.A.9.5) subfamily. GABRB1 sub-subfamily.
  • Cellular localization
    Cell junction > synapse > postsynaptic cell membrane. Cell membrane.
