gamma-aminobutyric acid receptor subunit gamma-2
Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) is the primary inhibitory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system, causing a hyperpolarization of the membrane through the opening of a Cl(-) channel associated with the GABAA receptor (GABAA-R) subtype. GABAA-Rs are important therapeutic targets for a range of sedative, anxiolytic, and hypnotic agents and are implicated in several diseases including epilepsy, anxiety, depression, and substance abuse. The GABAA-R is a multimeric subunit complex. To date six alphas, four betas and four gammas, plus alternative splicing variants of some of these subunits, have been identified (Olsen and Tobin, 1990; Whiting et al., 1999; Ogris et al., 2004). Injection in oocytes or mammalian cell lines of cRNA coding for alpha- and beta-subunits results in the expression of functional GABAA-Rs sensitive to GABA. However, co-expression of a gamma-subunit is required for benzodiazepine modulation. The various effects of the benzodiazepines in brain may also be mediated via different alpha-subunits of the receptor (McKernan et al., 2000; Mehta and Ticku, 1998; Ogris et al., 2004; Poltl et al., 2003). Lastly, phosphorylation of beta-subunits of the receptor has been shown to modulate GABAA-R function (Brandon et al., 2003).

FAQs for GABA-A R gamma 2 Antibody (NB300-151). (Showing 1 - 2 of 2 FAQs).
I am looking for a "Primary antibody for GABAa receptor gamma 2" raised from antigen whose aa sequence is between exon 5-10. The application will be for "Immunohistochemistry". I would like to know if you have a product to match it?
NB300-190 is direceted against GABA A receptor gamma 2, is suitable for use in IHC and uses a fusion protein from the cytoplasmic loop of the gamma 2 subunit as an antigen, so this should suit your needs.
Are there neutralizing peptides for this antibody?
There is no neutralizing peptide available for this antibody.
