Background The metabotropic glutamate receptors (mGluRs) are key receptors in the modulation of excitatory synaptic transmission in the central nervous system. They are implicated in many forms of neural plasticity as well as learning and memory and drug abuse (Bhattacharya et al., 2004; Francesconi et al., 2004; Wilson and Nicoll, 2001). Group I metabotropic glutamate receptors (consisting of mGluR1 and mGluR5) are G-protein-coupled neurotransmitter receptors that are localized in the perisynaptic region of the postsynaptic membrane. When activated, Group I mGluRs lead to stimulation of phospholipase and activation of Protein Kinase C. In contrast, activation of Group II metabotropic receptors (mGluR2 and mGluR3) leads to inhibition of adenylate cyclase. The mGluR2 subunit has been shown to be required for long-term potentiation at the mossy fiber input in the hippocampus (Yokoi et al., 1996).

Species Reactivity
Species reactivity (expected):
Bovine, Canine, Human, Mouse, Zebrafish and non-Human Primates.
Species reactivity (tested):
This antibody recognizes the ~110k monomer and the ~220k dimer of mGluR2 and mGluR3. Immunolabeling is blocked by preadsorption of antibody with the peptide used as antigen to generate the antibody.
