Application Abreviews Notes
WB 1/1000 - 1/2000. Detects a band of approximately 105 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 105 kDa).Can be blocked with NMDAR1 peptide (ab168728).
IP 1/30.
IHC-P 1/100 - 1/250. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
  • Application notes
    Is unsuitable for Flow Cyt or ICC.
  • Target

    • Function
      NMDA receptor subtype of glutamate-gated ion channels with high calcium permeability and voltage-dependent sensitivity to magnesium. Mediated by glycine. This protein plays a key role in synaptic plasticity, synaptogenesis, excitotoxicity, memory acquisition and learning. It mediates neuronal functions in glutamate neurotransmission. Is involved in the cell surface targeting of NMDA receptors.
    • Sequence similarities
      Belongs to the glutamate-gated ion channel (TC 1.A.10.1) family. NR1/GRIN1 subfamily.
    • Post-translational
      NMDA is probably regulated by C-terminal phosphorylation of an isoform of NR1 by PKC. Dephosphorylated on Ser-897 probably by protein phosphatase 2A (PPP2CB). Its phosphorylated state is influenced by the formation of the NMDAR-PPP2CB complex and the NMDAR channel activity.
    • Cellular localization
      Cell membrane. Cell junction > synapse > postsynaptic cell membrane. Cell junction > synapse > postsynaptic cell membrane > postsynaptic density. Enriched in post-synaptic plasma membrane and post-synaptic densities.
