Application Abreviews Notes
WB 1/1000. Detects a band of approximately 107 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 107 kDa). Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.
ICC/IF Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml.
IHC-FoFr Use at an assay dependent concentration. PubMed: 19114596


  • Function
    Receptor for glutamate. L-glutamate acts as an excitatory neurotransmitter at many synapses in the central nervous system. The postsynaptic actions of Glu are mediated by a variety of receptors that are named according to their selective agonists.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the glutamate-gated ion channel (TC 1.A.10.1) family. GRIK4 subfamily.
  • Cellular localization
    Cell membrane. Cell junction > synapse > postsynaptic cell membrane.

Anti-KA1 antibody images

  • ICC/IF image of ab10101 stained PC12 cells. The cells were 4% formaldehyde fixed (10 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab10101, 5µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM.
