Biological descriptionSelective group I mGlu receptor agonist
Also available in simple stock solutions (ab146669) - add 1 ml of water to get an exact, ready-to-use concentration.
Storage instructionsStore at -20°C. Store at -20°C long term. Store In the Dark. Store under desiccating conditions. This product is air and light sensitive and impurities can occur as a result of air oxidation or due to metabolism by microbes.
Solubility overviewSoluble in water to 10 mM
This compound is also unstable in alkaline solution when it rapidly forms a brown colouration it is therefore recommended that alkaline is not used to dissolve this compound.
We recommend stock solutions are made up in water, aliquoted immediately and stored at -20°C. They should be used within one week.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use at an assay dependent concentration.
ab17722 staining FMRP in SK-N-SH cells treated with (R,S)-3,5-DHPG (ab120020), by ICC/IF. Increase in FMRP expression correlates with increased concentration of (R,S)-3,5-DHPG, as described in literature. The cells were incubated at 37°C for 1h in media containing different concentrations of ab120020 ((R,S)-3,5-DHPG) in DMSO, fixed with 4% formaldehyde for 10 minutes at room temperature and blocked with PBS containing 10% goat serum, 0.3 M glycine, 1% BSA and 0.1% tween for 2h at room temperature. Staining of the treated cells with ab17722 (5 µg/ml) was performed overnight at 4°C in PBS containing 1% BSA and 0.1% tween. A DyLight 488 goat anti-rabbit polyclonal antibody (ab96899) at 1/250 dilution was used as the secondary antibody. Nuclei were counterstained with DAPI and are shown in blue.
