Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. Please refer to for technical protocols.
  3. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
  4. Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.

The sub-membraneous region of the postsynaptic neuron is an intricate network of cytoskeletal elements generally known as the postsynaptic density. It is thought that this elaborate cytoskeletal region is critical for receptor targeting, clustering, and efficient signal input. Gephyrin, a 93 kDa protein, was identified as a result of its ability to bind to polymerized tubulin (microtubules). Although expressed in all tissues, gephyrin mRNA is found most abundantly in brain. Alternative splicing produces at least five different mRNAs. Gephyrin colocalizes and interacts with the glycine receptor at the postsynaptic density. It is possible that Gephyrin acts as an anchor between the glycine receptor and microtubules.

This antibody is routinely tested by western blot analysis. Other applications were tested at BD Biosciences Pharmingen during antibody development only or reported in the literature.

Format Details
Down Arrow Up Arrow
Tissue culture supernatant is purified by either protein A/G or affinity purification methods. Both methods yield antibody in solution that is free of most other soluble proteins, lipids, etc. This format provides pure antibody that is suitable for a number of downstream applications including: secondary labeling for flow cytometry or microscopy, ELISA, Western blot, etc.
