  • Function
    NMDA receptor subtype of glutamate-gated ion channels possesses high calcium permeability and voltage-dependent sensitivity to magnesium. Activation requires binding of agonist to both types of subunits.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the glutamate-gated ion channel (TC 1.A.10.1) family. NR2A/GRIN2A subfamily.
  • Cellular localization
    Cell membrane. Cell junction > synapse > postsynaptic cell membrane.

Thank you for your message and for your patience.
It is difficult to find three secondary antibodies in three colors that woudl be suitable, but I hope the following will help. Please check the excitation and emission wavelenghts and spectra to ensure they are suitable for the machine you are using. (I say this because some of the blue dyes they suggest go into the green range in the light spectra). I can recommend to review the online datasheets for further information.
Anti NMDAR1 antibody (ab77264, goat polyclonal)
Red fluorophore Secondary antibodies for detection of goat primary:
Donkey anti-Goat IgG H&L (PE) secondary antibody (ab7004)

Anti-NMDAR2B antibody (ab28373, mouse monoclonal)
The following may fit into the blue channel on the instrument you are using, but I can suggest to please check this. The emission spectra is slightly into the green spectra.

I am sorry we do not have any that are tested and covered by the 6 month guarantee in western blot to suggest on this occasion.
The other option is to directly conjugate the primary antibodies yourself with our Easylink kits. These are quick and easy to use. However, please note that we recommend the following for these kits:
The antibody to be conjugated should be in 10-50mM amine-free buffer within a pH range of 6.5-8.5. Modest concentrations of Tris buffer (up to 20mM) are also tolerated.
I can recommend to read the following important information and frequently asked questions about the kits before selecting a suitable antibody to conjugate:
I hope this will be helpful. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any further questions.
