The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 56 kDa. Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.
FunctionThe glycine receptor is a neurotransmitter-gated ion channel. Binding of glycine to its receptor increases the chloride conductance and thus produces hyperpolarization (inhibition of neuronal firing).
Tissue specificityWidely distributed throughout the central nervous system.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the ligand-gated ion channel (TC 1.A.9) family. Glycine receptor (TC 1.A.9.3) subfamily. GLRA3 sub-subfamily.
DomainThe N-terminal domain carries structural determinants essential for agonist and antagonist binding. TM2 is thought to form the innert wall of the chloride channel. The cytoplasmic loop is an important determinant of channel inactivation kinetics.
