Our Anti-GABA-A-R-Gamma2L mouse monoclonal primary antibody from NeuroMab is produced in-house from hybridoma clone N452/69. It detects human, mouse, and rat GABA-A-R-Gamma2L, and is purified by Protein A chromatography. It is great for use in IHC, ICC.
Gamma-aminobutyric acid receptor subunit gamma-2, or GABA AR gamma2 is encoded by the gene GABRG2. GABA A receptors are members of the Cys-loop family of ligand-gated ion channels. GABA AR gamma2 is a subunit of the pentameric GABA receptors where GABA is the major inhibitory neurotransmitter in the vertebrate brain and mediates neuronal inhibition by binding to the GABA receptor and opening an integral chloride channel. GABA AR gamma2 has been found expressed in stomach and bladder. In brain, GABA AR gamma2 is expressed at the cell junction, synapse, postsynaptic cell membrane and cytoplasmic vesicle membrane. Mutations in this gene have been associated with epilepsy and febrile seizures. Note that GABA AR γ2 subunit has two forms, designated “short” (γ2S) and “long” (γ2L) that differ only in eight amino acids inserted into the large intracellular loop of the subunit (Whiting et al., 1990).
