Recognizes Vesicular Glutamate Transporter 1 (VGLUT1, BNPI {Brain specific Na+ dependent inorganic phosphate cotransporter}). The antiserum has been tested on tissue sections from the rat central nervous system (CNS) using immunofluorescence histochemistry. The antiserum mainly labels nerve fibers and terminals. VGLUT1 is an excellent marker for glutamatergic nerve terminals. The staining pattern for the staining obtained with the VGLUT1 antiserum corresponds to the pattern described using other antisera to VGLUT1 (Bellocchio et al., 1998; Fremeau et al., 2001; Fujiyama et al., 2001; Sakata-Haga et al., 2001; Tong et al., 2001; Kaneko et al. 2002; Varoqui et al., 2002). Preabsorption of the VGLUT1 antiserum with immunogen peptide eliminates all immunostaining.


Synthetic peptide from rat VGLUT1 protein with no overlap to VGLUT2. The immunogen is available as AG208.
