The datasheet is confusing because its difficult to determine if the antibody will specifically detect metaboropic or ionotropic glutamate receptor 3.

Thank you for your enquiry.
I have found that several years ago ab40845 was incorrectly listed as an antibody to metabotropic glutamate receptor 3. However it was then correct to list as ionotropic receptor. Unfortunately some indications from the old metabotropic datasheet survived, including those 2 citations and some alternative names.
So I can confirm ab40845 is specific for the ionotropic receptor. Also, the immunogen sequence is from amino acid 296 - 314 of the human protein.
I will contact our IT department to have the metabotropic related items removed from this datasheet to make things more clear.
I hope this is helpful. Please contact me again if you have any further questions.
