synthetic peptide corresponding to the C-terminal region of rat NMDAR1 (amino acids 918-938). This sequence is identical in mouse NR1, human NR1 (short and long forms), and rat NR1 isoforms NR1b, NR1c, and NR1f.

General description

NMDAR1 is a subunit of N-methyl D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor which is a subtype of glutamate-gated ion channels with high calcium permeability. NMDA receptors have unique voltage-dependent sensitivity to magnesium and are modified by glycine. It has a pivotal role in neuronal development, pathogenesis of acute and chronic neurodegenerative disorders, synaptic plasticity as well as memory acquisition and learning. Anti-glutamate receptor NMDAR1 (NR1) antibody can be used for studying the expression and function of NMDAR1 in different cell types and tissues as well as to compare its expression pattern with physiological functions or pathological conditions. Rabbit anti-glutamate receptor NMDAR1 (NR1) antibody reacts specifically with NMDAR1 (116kD) derived from rat brain.

Physical form

Solution in 0.01 M phosphate buffered saline, pH 7.4, containing 1% BSA and 15 mM sodium azide.


Anti-glutamate receptor NMDAR1 (NR1) antibody can be used as a primary antibody in western blotting. It can also be used to identify NR1 from rat brain synaptosomal fraction by using immunoblotting.
