Specificity Specific for VGLUT 2.
Remarks

This antibody is a chimeric antibody based on the monoclonal mouse antibody clone 95E11. The constant regions of the heavy and light chains have been replaced by Guinea pig specific sequences. Therefore, the antibody can be used with standard anti-Guinea pig secondary reagents. The antibody has been expressed in mammalian cells.
The antibody is highly recommended as a marker for glutamatergic nerve terminals.

WB: VGLUT 2 aggregates after boiling, making it necessary to run SDS-PAGE with non-boiled samples.

Background

The vesicular glutamate transporter 2 VGLUT 2, also referred to as DNPI and SLC17A6, has a more restricted expression than the related VGLUT 1. Like VGLUT 1, it 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.
