Purified Mouse Anti-NMDAR2B

Western blot analysis of  NMDAR2B on a rat cerebrum lysate (left). Lane 1: 1:250, lane 2: 1:500, lane 3: 1:1000 dilution of the mouse anti- NMDAR2B antibody.

Immunofluorescent staining of SK-N-SH cells (right). Cells were seeded in a 384 well collagen coated Microplates (Material # 353962) at ~ 8,000 cells per well.  After overnight incubation, cells were stained using the Triton X100 fix/perm protocol (see Recommended Assay Procedure; Bioimaging protocol link) and the anti- NMDAR2B antibody.  The second step reagent was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti mouse Ig (Invitrogen)(pseudo colored green). Cell nuclei were counter stained with Hoechst 33342 (pseudo colored blue). The image was taken on a BD Pathway™  855 or 435 Bioimager System using a 20x objective and merged using the BD AttoVison ™ software. This antibody also stained SH-SY5Y, SK-N-SH, C6, U87 and U373 cells using both the Triton X100 and methanol fix/perm protocols (see Recommended Assay Procedure; Bioimaging protocol link).

Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. 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.
  3. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
  4. This antibody has been developed and certified for the bioimaging application. However, a routine bioimaging test is not performed on every lot. Researchers are encouraged to titrate the reagent for optimal performance.
  5. Sodium azide is a reversible inhibitor of oxidative metabolism; therefore, antibody preparations containing this preservative agent must not be used in cell cultures nor injected into animals. Sodium azide may be removed by washing stained cells or plate-bound antibody or dialyzing soluble antibody in sodium azide-free buffer. Since endotoxin may also affect the results of functional studies, we recommend the NA/LE (No Azide/Low Endotoxin) antibody format, if available, for in vitro and in vivo use.

13/NMDAR2B

The majority of synapses in the central nervous system utilize glutamate as a neurotransmitter to produce rapid neuronal excitation. Glutamate has a diverse array of receptors that can be categorized into two groups: ionotropic and metabotropic.  The ionotropic receptors are subdivided into two distint types: 1) receptors for N-methyl D-aspartate (NMDAR) and 2) non-NMDA receptors for AMPA and kainate.  Three types of NMDAR2 have been identified:  NR2A, NR2B, and NR2C.  NR2A and NR2B contain a C-terminal extension (>600 amino acids) that has small scattered regions of conserved sequence. The three NR2 mRNAs show overlapping, differential expression patterns in the rat brain.  NR2B has been reported to be expressed in the forebrain, thalamic nuclei, amygdaloid nuclei, caudateputamen, and in restricted regions of the olfactory bulb.

Purified
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.
