  • Form
    Lyophilised
  • Additional notes

    Reconstitution instructions:

    - First try to dissolve a small amount of peptide in either water or buffer. The more charged residues on a peptide, the more soluble it is in aqueous solutions.

    - If the peptide doesn’t dissolve try an organic solvent e.g. DMSO, then dilute using water or buffer.

    - Consider that any solvent used must be compatible with your assay. If a peptide does not dissolve and you need to recover it, lyophilise to remove the solvent.

    - Gentle warming and sonication can effectively aid peptide solubilisation. If the solution is cloudy or has gelled the peptide may be in suspension rather than solubilised.

    - Peptides containing cysteine are easily oxidised, so should be prepared in solution just prior to use.

  • Function
    Ionotropic glutamate receptor. L-glutamate acts as an excitatory neurotransmitter at many synapses in the central nervous system. Binding of the excitatory neurotransmitter L-glutamate induces a conformation change, leading to the opening of the cation channel, and thereby converts the chemical signal to an electrical impulse. The receptor then desensitizes rapidly and enters a transient inactive state, characterized by the presence of bound agonist.
  • Tissue specificity
    Widely expressed in brain.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the glutamate-gated ion channel (TC 1.A.10.1) family. GRIA1 subfamily.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Palmitoylated. Depalmitoylated upon glutamate stimulation. Cys-603 palmitoylation leads to Golgi retention and decreased cell surface expression. In contrast, Cys-829 palmitoylation does not affect cell surface expression but regulates stimulation-dependent endocytosis.
  • Cellular localization
    Cell membrane. Endoplasmic reticulum membrane. Cell junction > synapse > postsynaptic cell membrane. Interaction with CACNG2 promotes cell surface expression.
