Scientific Data Images for Human mGluR8 Antibody

mGluR8 antibody in Human Brain by Immunohistochemistry (IHC-P).

mGluR8 in Human Brain.

mGluR8 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human brain (hippocampus) using Mouse Anti-Human mGluR8 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB5277) at 25 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the Anti-Mouse HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS002) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue).

Background: mGluR8

mGluR8 is a Group III metabotropic glutamate receptor. These 7-transmembrane glycoproteins are negatively coupled to adenylate cyclase and expressed presynaptically throughout the brain. mGluR8 shows pronounced expression in the dentate gyrus and CA3 regions of the hippocampus, and is thought to play a role in memory formation. Two splice forms, A and B, differ only in the C-terminal 16 amino acids (aa 893‑909), while splice form C diverges at aa 454 and is truncated prior to the first transmembrane segment. Within the N-terminal extracellular region used as an immunogen (aa 34‑514), human, mouse and rat mGluR8 share 98%‑99% aa identity.
