Background Information

Glutamate receptors are the predominant excitatory neurotransmitter receptors in the mammalian brain and are activated in a variety of normal neurophysiologic processes. GRIA2 (glutamate receptor 2, GluR-2) belongs to a family of glutamate receptors that are sensitive to alpha-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxazole propionate (AMPA), and function as ligand-activated cation channels that mediate the fast component of excitatory postsynaptic currents in neurons of the central nervous system. These channels are assembled from 4 related subunits, GRIA1-4. The presence of GRIA2 in the heteromeric AMPA receptors impermeabilizes it to calcium, preventing possible calcium-mediated toxicity.

The antibody signal is quite strong (50-70sec of exposure) and gives "clean" bands. The diluted antibody (TBS 0.1% Tween+5% BSA) does not work well anymore after 2-3 times of re-use
