General description

DLG4 (discs large MAGUK scaffold protein 4) gene codes for the postsynaptic density-95 (PSD95) protein. Postsynaptic density 95 (PSD-95), a synaptic scaffolding protein is also a membrane-associated guanylate kinase (MAGUK) family protein. It has three PDZ domains on the N terminus followed by a Src homology 3 (SH3) domain and a guanylate kinase (GK) domain. This gene is located on human chromosome 17p13.1.


Reacts with both the recombinant and native rat PSD95. By immunofluorescence with rat hippocampal cells, a staining pattern coincident with NMDA receptor staining at synaptic sites consistent with its proposed role in receptor clustering is observed. Fixation with cold methanol is recommended.


recombinant rat PSD95 (post synaptic density 95 kDa).
