Target

  • Relevance
    L glutamate is the major excitatory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system and activates both ionotropic and metabotropic glutamate receptors. Glutamatergic neurotransmission is involved in most aspects of normal brain function and can be perturbed in many neuropathologic conditions. The metabotropic glutamate receptors are a family of G protein coupled receptors, that have been divided into 3 groups on the basis of sequence homology, putative signal transduction mechanisms, and pharmacologic properties. Group I includes GRM1 and GRM5 and these receptors have been shown to activate phospholipase C. Group II includes GRM2 and GRM3 while Group III includes GRM4, GRM6, GRM7 and GRM8. The activity of GRM2 and GRM3 receptors are mediated by a G-protein that inhibits adenylate cyclase activity.

  • ab6438 staining the Metabotropic Glutamate Receptor 2+3 in Chicken brain tissue sections by IHC-Fr (Frozen sections). Tissue samples were fixed with paraformaldehyde and blocked with 5% serum for 1 hour 30 minutes at 20°C. The sample was incubated with primary antibody (1/100) at 4°C for 8 hours. Ab6720 (1/400) was used as secondary antibody.

  • ab6438 staining Metabotropic Glutamate Receptor 2+3 in rat retinal tissue by Immunohistochemistry (Frozen sections).
    Tissue was fixed in paraformaldehyde, blocked using 10% serum for 20 minutes at 24°C, then incubated with ab6438 at a 1/100 dilution for 16 hours at 4°C. The secondary used was an Alexa-Fluor 488 (green) conjugated donkey anti-rabbit polyclonal, used at a 1/1000 dilution. Counterstained with Hoechst 33258 (blue).
