Target Description:

Gamma-aminobutyric acid receptor subunit alpha-2 or GABA AR-Alpha2 is encoded by the gene GABRA2. GABAA receptors are members of the Cys-loop family of ligand-gated ion channels. GABA AR alpha 5 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-Alpha2 is primarily expressed in brain at the cell junction, synapse,and the postsynaptic cell membrane. Diseases associated with GABRA2 include Alcohol Dependence and Alcohol Use Disorder.

Immunogen:

Fusion protein amino acids 350-385 (cytoplasmic C-terminus) of rat GABA-A-R-Alpha2 (also known as Gamma-aminobutyric acid receptor subunit alpha-2, GABA(A) receptor subunit alpha-2 and Gabra2, accession number P23576)
Mouse: 100% identity (36/36 amino acids identical)
Human: 97% identity (35/36 amino acids identical)
50% identity with GABA-A-R-Alpha1

Cross Reactivity:

Does not cross-react with GABA-A-R-Alpha1

Protein Name(s):

Gamma-aminobutyric acid receptor subunit alpha-2 (GABA(A) receptor subunit alpha-2)
