Application Abreviews Notes
IHC-Fr Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. See reference Neki et al, Neurosci Letts.
WB Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 99 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 104 kDa). See reference Neki et al, Neurosci Letts.
ICC/IF Use at an assay dependent concentration.
IHC-FoFr Use at an assay dependent dilution.


  • FunctionReceptor for glutamate. The activity of this receptor is mediated by a G-protein that inhibits adenylate cyclase activity. May mediate suppression of neurotransmission or may be involved in synaptogenesis or synaptic stabilization.
  • Tissue specificityWidely expressed in different regions of the adult brain as well as in fetal brain.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the G-protein coupled receptor 3 family.
  • Cellular localizationCell membrane.

    Goat Anti-Mouse IgG H&L (HRP) preadsorbed (ab97040) at 1/5000 dilution
    Developed using the ECL technique

    Performed under reducing conditions.

    Predicted band size : 104 kDa
    Observed band size : 99 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
    Additional bands at : 45 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.

    Exposure time : 12 minutes
  • Immunohistochemical analysis of mouse cortical neurons, staining Metabotropic Glutamate Receptor 2 with ab15672. Donkey anti-mouse 6-nm colloidal gold particles were used to detect staining. Images were visualized by electron microscopy.

You are correct, this antibody recognizes a portion of the N-terminus of mGluR2.

I am glad to read that most of the antibodies you ordered are giving good results. For the two that are not, could you please send some details of the samples and protocols and results? In particular, we would like to know the species, the time in PFA,...
