Species Reactivity Note
The antibody has been directly tested for reactivity in Western blots with human, mouse and rat tissue.
Biological Significance
The NMDA receptor (NMDAR) plays an essential role in memory, neuronal development and it has also been implicated in several disorders of the central nervous system including Alzheimer's, epilepsy and ischemic neuronal cell death (Grosshans et al., 2002; Wenthold et al., 2003; Carroll and Zukin, 2002). The NMDA receptor is also one of the principal molecular targets for alcohol in the CNS (Lovinger et al., 1989; Alvestad et al., 2003; Snell et al., 1996). The NMDAR is also potentiated by protein phosphorylation (Lu et al., 1999). The rat NMDAR1 (NR1) was the first subunit of the NMDAR to be cloned. The NR1 protein can form NMDA activated channels when expressed in Xenopus oocytes but the currents in such channels are much smaller than those seen in situ. Channels with more physiological characteristics are produced when the NR1 subunit is combined with one or more of the NMDAR2 (NR2 A-D) subunits.
Preparation and Storage
Store at -20 degree C; stable for at least 1 year
Other Notes
Small volumes of anti-GRIN2B antibody vial(s) may occasionally become entrapped in the seal of the product vial during shipment and storage. If necessary, briefly centrifuge the vial on a tabletop centrifuge to dislodge any liquid in the container`s cap. Certain products may require to ship with dry ice and additional dry ice fee may apply.

NCBI Summary for GRIN2B
subunit of the NMDA receptor glutamate gated ion channel; displays voltage dependent sensitivity to magnesium, calcium permeability, and glycine regulated activity; may facilitate learning and long term potentiation [RGD, Feb 2006]
UniProt Comments for GRIN2B
Function: NMDA receptor subtype of glutamate-gated ion channels with high calcium permeability and voltage-dependent sensitivity to magnesium. Mediated by glycine. In concert with DAPK1 at extrasynaptic sites, acts as a central mediator for stroke damage. Its phosphorylation at Ser-1303 by DAPK1 enhances synaptic NMDA receptor channel activity inducing injurious Ca2+ influx through them, resulting in an irreversible neuronal death

By similarity.

Subunit structure: Forms heteromeric channel of a zeta subunit (GRIN1), a epsilon subunit (GRIN2A, GRIN2B, GRIN2C or GRIN2D) and a third subunit (GRIN3A or GRIN3B). Found in a complex with GRIN1, GRIN3A and PPP2CB. Found in a complex with GRIN1 and GRIN3B. Interacts with MAGI3. Interacts with HIP1 and Neto1

By similarity. Interacts with PDZ domains of INADL and DLG4. Interacts with DAPK1

By similarity. Ref.3 Ref.4 Ref.5 Ref.6 Ref.7 Ref.8

Subcellular location: Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. Cell junction › synapse › postsynaptic cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein.

Post-translational modification: Phosphorylation at Ser-1303 by DAPK1 enhances synaptic NMDA receptor channel activity

By similarity.

Sequence similarities: Belongs to the glutamate-gated ion channel (TC 1.A.10.1) family. NR2B/GRIN2B subfamily. [View classification]
