Guinea Pig-Raised Antibodies: Antibodies raised in guinea pig can be used with any non-guinea pig second species antibodies (e.g. antibodies raised in mouse, rabbit, goat, etc.) in complex immunostaining or immunoprecipitation protocols. Our line of guinea pig raised antibodies can be combined with any of our rabbit-raised or ATTO-conjugated antibodies in complex immunostaining protocols.
Apart from its obvious biochemical functions, glycine is also an important inhibitory neurotransmitter. Following depolarization, glycine is released from synaptic vesicles, binds to glycine receptors (GlyRs) on postsynaptic membranes thereby causing hyperpolarization of postsynaptic neurons due to the massive influx of Cl– ions. Glycine is then taken up from the synaptic cleft via the glycine transporters GlyT1 and GlyT2. Proline Transporter (PROT) belongs to a gene family of high affinity Na+– and Cl−-dependent plasma membrane transporters. PROT is a glycosylated protein encoded by the Slc6a7 gene. Its structure contains 12 putative transmembrane domains and is enriched in synaptosomal membrane fraction.
