Neuronal Glutamate Transporter (EAAC1; also called EAAT3). The antibody has been tested on central nervous system tissue. The staining pattern for the cell bodies obtained with AB1520 corresponds to the pattern described using in situ hybridization with probes to rEAAC1 mRNA. The immunoreactivity corresponds to what has been described for glutamatergic neuronal systems. Preabsorption of the antiserum with the immunogen peptide completely abolishes the immunostaining.


Synthetic peptide from the carboxy-terminus of the cloned rat EAAC1.


Anti-Glutamate Transporter Antibody, neuronal detects level of Glutamate Transporter & has been published & validated for use in IH.

Immunohistochemistry: 1:4,000-8,000 using a cyanine-conjugated secondary antibody. Enzymatic methods of detections can be used, however antibody dilution must be increased to 1:10,000-1:30,000. Lightly fixed, 4% PFA material is recommended. The use of triton X-100 in the block only is recommended.

This antibody is not recommended for use in Western blot.

Optimal working dilutions must be determined by the end user.
