GABA(A) Receptor delta Antibody Description

Anti-GABA(A) Receptor delta Antibody detects GABA(A) Receptor delta. Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) is the primary inhibitory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system, causing a hyperpolarization of the membrane through the opening of a Cl- channel associated with the GABAA receptor (GABAA-R) subtype. GABAA-Rs are important therapeutic targets for a range of sedative, anxiolytic, and hypnotic agents and are implicated in several diseases including epilepsy, anxiety, depression, and substance abuse. The GABAA-R is a multimeric subunit complex. To date six as, four ßs and four ?s, plus alternative splicing variants of some of these subunits, have been identified. Injection in oocytes or mammalian cell lines of cRNA coding for a- and ß-subunits results in the expression of functional GABAA-Rs sensitive to GABA. However, co-expression of a ?-subunit is required for benzodiazepine modulation. The various effects of the benzodiazepines in brain may also be mediated via different a-subunits of the receptor. More recently there have been a number of studies demonstrating that the d-subunit of the receptor may affect subunit assembly and may also confer differential sensitivity to neurosteroids and to ethanol. GABA(A) receptor delta antibody is ideal for investigators involved in Neuroscience.

Storage Condition
Store vial at -20° C prior to opening. This product is stable at 4° C as an undiluted liquid. For extended storage, aliquot contents and freeze at -20° C or below. Avoid cycles of freezing and thawing. Dilute only prior to immediate use.
Application Note
Anti-GABA(A) Receptor delta (Rabbit) antibody (600-401-C80) is tested for use in Western Blotting, and is suitable for Western blotting and other immunoassays. Specific conditions should be optimized by the end user. Expect a band of approximately 52 kDa in size corresponding to the delta subunit of the GABA(A) proteins.
Anti-GABA(A) Receptor delta Antibody is directed against rat GABA(A) Receptor delta. The antibody was affinity purified from monospecific antiserum by immunoaffinity purification. This antibody is directed against rat GABAA receptor delta protein. Reactivity is expected from mouse. Cross reactivity with GABA(A) Receptor delta from other sources has not been determined.
