General description

N-methyl-D-aspartate Receptors (NMDAR) are one of three pharmacologically distinct subtypes of ionotropic receptors that mediate a majority of excitatory neurotransmission in the brain via the endogenous amino acid, L-glutamate. MDARs form heteromeric complexes usually composed of two components, the NR1 subunit and NR2 subunits. Both proteins are weakly expressed throughout the brain but show localization in the dendritic region of the mushroom bodies. The NMDAR channel is highly permeable to Ca2+ and Na+ and its opening requires the simultaneous binding of glutamate and postsynaptic membrane depolarization. The activated NMDAR channel allows calcium influx into the post-synaptic cell where calcium triggers a cascade of biochemical events that create synaptic changes. NMDAR have been studied extensively in Drosophila for its potential relationship to behavioral plasticity. A newly identified NMDAR complex of more than 80 different proteins has been identified. Genetic and pharmacological disruptions of components of the NMDAR complex produce learning impairments in rodents, further linking behavioral plasticity to synaptic plasticity.


Reactivity in mouse is weak. On reduced Western blots a band matching that in rat is observed but tests in immunohistochemistry have been unsuccessful. It is expected that the antibody will also react with monkey, gerbil, rabbit, feline and fish based on the fact that another antibody made to the same peptide sequence reacts with those species.
The original sequence used is selective for splice variants NR1-1a, NR1-1b, NR1-2a, NR1-2b using the nomenclature defined by Hollmann, M. et al. (1993). These appear to be the major splice variants expressed in rat brain (Sugihara H, et al., 1992). No cross-reaction with other glutamate receptor subunits. Western Blot analysis shows that this rabbit monoclonal antibody labels a single band at approximately 120 kD corresponding to NMDAR1 in rat brain lysate.
