  • Function

    The glycine receptor is a neurotransmitter-gated ion channel. Binding of glycine to its receptor increases the chloride conductance and thus produces hyperpolarization (inhibition of neuronal firing).
  • Involvement in disease

    Defects in GLRA1 are a cause of startle disease (STHE) [MIM:149400]; also known as hereditary hyperekplexia or congenital stiff-person syndrome. STHE is a genetically heterogeneous neurologic disorder characterized by muscular rigidity of central nervous system origin, particularly in the neonatal period, and by an exaggerated startle response to unexpected acoustic or tactile stimuli. Inheritance can be autosomal dominant or recessive.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the ligand-gated ion channel (TC 1.A.9) family. Glycine receptor (TC 1.A.9.3) subfamily. GLRA1 sub-subfamily.
  • Cellular localization

    Cell junction > synapse > postsynaptic cell membrane. Cell membrane.

Customer reviews and Q&As


Thank you for your enquiry regarding our antibody to alpha 1 glycine receptor. To my knowledge, there is no experimental data on whether this antibody will also recognise alpha2 glysine receptor. I have done a BLAST sequence alignment analogy search, and there is 76% homology between these two peptides. We would normally recommend that an antibody has over 85% homology before we can predict the antibody will detect it. This is fairly close, so it may give weak binding. I hope this helps. Please get back to me if you have any more questions, and I will be happy to help.
