  • FunctionNMDA receptor subtype of glutamate-gated ion channels with high calcium permeability and voltage-dependent sensitivity to magnesium. Mediated by glycine.
  • Tissue specificityPrimarily found in the fronto-parieto-temporal cortex and hippocampus pyramidal cells, lower expression in the basal ganglia.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the glutamate-gated ion channel (TC 1.A.10.1) family. NR2B/GRIN2B subfamily.
  • Cellular localizationCell membrane. Cell junction > synapse > postsynaptic cell membrane.

  • Anti-NMDAR2B antibody (ab73001) at 1/1000 dilution + rat hippocampal lysate at 10 µg

    Predicted band size : 166 kDa
    Observed band size : 180 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
    Additional bands at : 120 kDa,<68 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.
