Description/Data:
Picture

Metabotropic glutamate receptors (mGluRs) are G-protein coupled receptors activated by glutamate. Based on sequence similarity, transduction mechanisms and agonist potencies, mGluRs are subdivided into three groups: mGluR1/mGluR5, mGluR2/mGluR3, and mGluR4/mGluR6/mGluR7/mGluR8. mGluRs are widely distributed throughout the nervous system and are expressed by both neurons and glial cells. mGluRs have been suggested to play a variety of functional roles, among which is involvement in synaptic plasticity underlying learning and memory as well as chronic pain.

This antibody has not yet been tested in other species.

Human metabotropic glutamate receptor 5 (mGluR5; also mGluR5b) is a 150 kDa, 7-transmembrane glycoprotein that belongs to group I of the C-family of G-protein coupled receptors. mGluR5 is constitutively expressed and regulates neuronal ion channel activity. Human mGluR5 is 1212 aa in length and contains an N-terminal extracellular domain (ECD) of 558 amino acids. There is one alternate splice form (mGluR5a) that shows a 32 aa deletion between aa 877 - 908 in the cytoplasmic tail. Over aa 19 - 509, human mGluR5 is 98% aa identical to mouse, rat and dog mGluR5.
