VGLUT1 antibody - 135 011C3 K.O.

VGluT1 is a glutamate transporter in the membrane of synaptic vesicles
Mouse monoclonal purified IgG
Cat. No.: 135 011C3
Amount: 100 µg
Price: $470.00
Cat. No. 135 011C3 100 µg purified IgG, lyophilized, fluorescence-labeled with Cyanine 3.

Fluorescence labeled antibodies conjugated to Cyanine dyes are well suited for standard epi-fluorescence setups and confocal microscopy.

Cyanine 2: λex 492 nm / λem 508 nm
Sulfo-Cyanine 3: λex 554 nm / λem 568 nm
Sulfo-Cyanine 5: λex 649 nm / λem 667 nm

Cyanine 5 dyes are well suited for STORM high resolution microscopy.
Sulfo-Cyanines are highly water soluble and allow a higher labeling degree and consequently brighter conjugates.

Albumin and azide were added for stabilization. For reconstitution add 100 µl H2O to get a 1mg/ml solution in PBS. Either add 1:1 (v/v) glycerol, then aliquot and store at -20°C until use, or store aliquots at -80°C without additives.
Reconstitute immediately upon receipt! Avoid bright light when working with the antibody to minimize photo bleeching of the fluorescent dye.

The vesicular glutamate transporter 1 VGLUT 1, also referred to as BNPI and SLC17A7, was originally identified as a brain specific phosphate transporter. Like the related VGLUT 2, VGLUT 1 is both necessary and sufficient for uptake and storage of glutamate and thus comprises the sole determinant for a glutamatergic phenotype. Both VGLUTs are different from the plasma membrane transporters in that they are driven by a proton electrochemical gradient across the vesicle membrane.
VGLUT 1 and VGLUT 2 show complementary expression patterns. Together, they are currently the best markers for glutamatergic nerve terminals and glutamatergic synapses.
