Immunogen: Synthetic peptide (keyhole limpet hemocyanin -KLH conjugate) corresponding to different regions of the metabotropic glutamate receptor type 5 gene product, but are shared between the human (NP_001137303.1, NCBI) and mouse (Q3UVX5.2, NCBI) sequences.
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.
