This product is a recombinant rabbit monoclonal antibody.
Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab76316 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
|WB||1/5000 - 1/10000. Predicted molecular weight: 132 kDa.Can be blocked with Metabotropic Glutamate Receptor 5 peptide (ab139974).|
|IHC-P||1/250 - 1/500. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
Use of HRP-conjugated or polymerized HRP secondary antibodies, stronger signals have been found using the polymerized HRP secondary.
ab172730 - Rabbit monoclonal IgG, is suitable for use as an isotype control with this antibody.
|Electron Microscopy||Use at an assay dependent concentration.|
|ICC/IF||1/100 - 1/250.|
Array tomography of adult mouse neocortex using Anti-Metabotropic Glutamate Receptor 5 antibody [EPR2425Y] (ab76316) (green), VGluT1 (red) and DAPI (blue).
Tissue was fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde before being embedded in LRWhite resin. Ultra-thin sections (70 nm) were incubated with Anti-Metabotropic Glutamate Receptor 5 antibody [EPR2425Y] (ab76316) at a concentration of 1:13 overnight at 4oC. Secondary antibodies were applied for 30 minutes at room temperature.

ab76316 staining Metabotropic Glutmate Receptor 5 in mouse caudate putamen/ Corpus callosum by immunohistochemistry (frozen sections). Tissue was fixed with formaldehyde and samples were blocked with 1% BSA for 10 minutes at 21°C, before incubation with the primary antibody (1/2000) for 16 hours at 21°C. An alexa fluor® 594 conjugated goat anti-rabbit IgG secondary was used at 1/500.
Postembedding immunogold labeling of mouse neocortex using Anti-Metabotropic Glutamate Receptor 5 antibody [EPR2425Y] (ab76316). The tissue was embedded in Lowicryl HM20 resin. 60 nm sections were then cut and mounted on nickel mesh grids before undergoing antigen retrieval for 15 minutes in 0.01 M citrate buffer, pH 6 at 60°C.
The sections were then blocked in 1% BSA/TBSN pH 7.6 and incubated overnight at room temperature with Anti-Metabotropic Glutamate Receptor 5 antibody [EPR2425Y] (ab76316) at 1:250. Sections were washed twice in TBSN pH 7.6, treated with 1% normal donkey serum/TBSN pH 8.2 for 30 minutes, before being incubated with donkey anti-rabbit IgG-Au 10-20 nm at 1:20 for two hours at room temperature.
Sections were then washed in TBSN pH 8.2, followed by water, before undergoing post-staining with 1% uranyl acetate and Sato’s lead. They were then air dried before being transferred to an oven for 30 minutes at 60oC

ab76316 staining Metabotropic Glutmate Receptor 5 in rat hippocampal neurons by ICC/IF (Immunocytochemistry/immunofluorescence). Cells were fixed with formaldehyde, permeabilized with 0.2% Triton X-100 and blocked with 5% serum for 20 minutes at 22°C. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/200) for 24 hours at 4°C. An Alexa Fluor® 594-conjugated chicken anti-rabbit IgG polyclonal (1/200) was used as the secondary antibody.
Flow cytometric analysis of permeabilized SH-SY5Y cells using ab76316 (red) at 1/20 or a rabbit IgG (ab172730) as a negative control (green). The cells were permeabilized with 2% PFA and a goat anti-rabbit IgG FITC was used as the secondary at 1/150.
ab76316 staining Metabotropic Glutmate Receptor 5 in mouse caudate putamen/ Corpus callosum by immunohistochemistry. Tissue was fixed with formaldehyde and citrate-mediated antigen retrieval was performed. Samples were blocked with 1% BSA for 10 minutes at 21°C, before incubation with the primary antibody (1/1000) for 2 hours at 21°C. A biotin conjugated goatanti-rabbit IgG secondary was used at 1/250.
