Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab12399 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

  • Applications

    Blocking - Blocking peptide for Anti-Glutamate Receptor 1 (AMPA subtype) (phospho T840) antibody (ab12108)

  • Form

  • Additional notes

    - 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

    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.
  • Information by UniProt


  • ab12108 detects 2 bands over 100kDa by Western Blot. Both of these bands are blocked by the immunizing phospho peptide (lane 4), but not by the non-modified peptide (lane 5). However the immunoprecipitation data (below) demonstrates that the upper band (at ~120kDa) is unlikely to be GluR1 and therefore is an unknown protein.
