ZooMAb antibodies represent an entirely new generation of recombinant monoclonal antibodies.
Each ZooMAb antibody is manufactured using our proprietary recombinant expression system, purified to homogeneity, and precisely dispensed to produce robust and highly reproducible lot-to-lot consistency. Only top-performing clones are released for use by researchers. Each antibody is validated for high specificity and affinity across multiple applications, including its most commonly used application. ZooMAb antibodies are reliably available and ready to ship when you need them.Learn more about ZooMAb here.
Clone A12W is a ZooMAb rabbit recombinant monoclonal antibody that specifically detects NMDAR2A.
His-tagged recombinant fragment corresponding to 200 amino acids from the C-terminal region.
Anti-NMDAR2A, clone A12W ZooMAb, Cat. No. ZRB04901, is a recombinant Rabbit Monoclonal Antibody that targets NMDA2A receptor and has been tested for use in Immunocytochemistry, Immunohistochemistry (Paraffin), and Western Blotting.
Western Blotting Analysis: A 1:2,000 dilution from a representative lot detected NMDAR2A in mouse brain tissue lysate.
Immunocytochemistry Analysis: A 1:100 dilution from a representative lot detected NMDAR2A in SH-SY5Y cells.
Immunohistochemistry (Paraffin) Analysis: A 1:200 dilution from a representative lot detected NMDAR2A in rat brain tissue sections.
Glutamate receptor ionotropic, NMDA 2A (UniProt: Q12879; also known as GluN2A, Glutamate [NMDA] receptor subunit epsilon-1, N-methyl D-aspartate receptor subtype 2A, NMDAR2A, NR2A, hNR2A) is encoded by the GRIN2A (also known as NMDAR2A) gene (Gene ID: 2903) in human. NMDA receptor complexes are ligand-gated ion channels with high calcium permeability and voltage-dependent sensitivity to magnesium. They are involved in long-term potentiation and neuronal plasticity and regulate the number of nerve cells during development. However, over-stimulation NMDA receptors can lead to neuronal degeneration. NMDAR2A is a multi-pass membrane protein that is synthesized with a signal peptide (aa 1-22), which is subsequently cleaved off. NMDAR2A exists as a heterotetramer and the heterotetrameric channels are composed of two zeta subunits (GRIN1), and two epsilon subunits (GRIN2A, GRIN2B, GRIN2C or GRIN2D) (in vitro). It can also form heterotetrameric channels that contain at least one zeta subunit (GRIN1), at least one epsilon subunit, plus GRIN3A or GRIN3B. In vivo, the subunit composition may depend on the expression levels of the different subunits. These heterotetrameric, ligand-gated ion channels display with high calcium permeability and voltage-dependent sensitivity to magnesium. Channel activation requires binding of the neurotransmitter glutamate to the epsilon subunit, glycine binding to the zeta subunit, plus membrane depolarization to eliminate channel inhibition by magnesium ions. It has been shown that channels containing GRIN1 and GRIN2A have higher sensitivity to glutamate and faster kinetics than channels formed by GRIN1 and GRIN2B. Mutations in GRIN2A gene are known to cause epilepsy, speech disorders, and mental retardation. This ZooMAb recombinant monoclonal antibody, generated by our propriety technology, offers significantly enhanced specificity, affinity, reproducibility, and stability over conventional monoclonals.
