Application Abreviews Notes
WB Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml.
ICC/IF Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml.


  • FunctionCatalyzes the synthesis of D-serine from L-serine. D-serine is a key coagonist with glutamate at NMDA receptors. Has dehydratase activity towards both L-serine and D-serine.
  • Tissue specificityBrain: expressed at high levels in hippocampus and corpus callosum, intermediate levels in substantia nigra and caudate, and low levels in amygdala, thalamus, and subthalamic nuclei. Expressed in heart, skeletal muscle, kidney and liver.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the serine/threonine dehydratase family.
  • Post-translational
    S-nitrosylated, leading to decrease the enzyme activity.

Anti-Serine racemase antibody images

  • ICC/IF image of ab45545 stained human SHSY5Y cells. The cells were methanol fixed (10 min), permabilised in 0.1% PBS-Tween (20 min) and incubated with the antibody (ab45545, 5µg/ml) for 1h at room temperature. 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine was used to block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The secondary antibody (green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red). DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue).

    Performed under reducing conditions.

    Observed band size : 37 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
    Additional bands at : 100 kDa,60 kDa,70 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.
