  • Target

    • Function
      Ionotropic glutamate receptor. L-glutamate acts as an excitatory neurotransmitter at many synapses in the central nervous system. Binding of the excitatory neurotransmitter L-glutamate induces a conformation change, leading to the opening of the cation channel, and thereby converts the chemical signal to an electrical impulse. The receptor then desensitizes rapidly and enters a transient inactive state, characterized by the presence of bound agonist.
    • Tissue specificity
      Widely expressed in brain.
    • Sequence similarities
      Belongs to the glutamate-gated ion channel (TC 1.A.10.1) family. GRIA1 subfamily.
    • Post-translational
      Palmitoylated. Depalmitoylated upon glutamate stimulation. Cys-603 palmitoylation leads to Golgi retention and decreased cell surface expression. In contrast, Cys-829 palmitoylation does not affect cell surface expression but regulates stimulation-dependent endocytosis.
    • Cellular localization
      Cell membrane. Endoplasmic reticulum membrane. Cell junction > synapse > postsynaptic cell membrane. Interaction with CACNG2 promotes cell surface expression.

    • Anti-Glutamate Receptor 1 (AMPA subtype) antibody [E308] (ab32436) at 1/1000 dilution + SH-SY5Y cell lysate.

      Predicted band size : 101 kDa
      Observed band size : 106 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
    • Ab32436, at a 1/50 dilution, staining Glutamate Receptor 1 (AMPA subtype) in paraffin embedded human brain tissue by Immunohistochemistry.
    • Immunohistochemical analysis of Human hippocampus tissue, staining Glutamate Receptor 1 (AMPA subtype) with ab32436.

      Antigen retrieval was performed by heat mediation in a citrate buffer (pH 6). Samples were blocked with 10% normal goat serum for 30 minutes before incubating with primary antibody (1/20) for 2 hours. A biotinylated anti-rabbit IgG was used as the secondary antibody and staining was detected using DAB.
