NMDAR2A/GluN2A (extracellular) Blocking Peptide (#BLP-GC002) is the original antigen used for immunization during Anti-NMDAR2A (GluN2A) (extracellular) Antibody (#AGC-002) generation. The blocking peptide binds and ‘blocks’ Anti-NMDAR2A/GluN2A (extracellular) primary antibody, this makes it a good negative reagent control to help confirm antibody specificity in western blot and immunohistochemistry applications. This control is also often called a pre-adsorption control.

- Multiplex staining of GluN2A and GluN2B in mouse deep cerebellar nucleusImmunohistochemical staining of perfusion-fixed frozen mouse brain sections using Anti-NMDAR2B (GluN2B) (extracellular)-ATTO Fluor-594 Antibody (#AGC-003-AR), (1:60) and Anti-NMDAR2A (GluN2A) (extracellular) Antibody (#AGC-002), (1:200). A. Sections were incubated with Anti-NMDAR2A (GluN2A) (extracellular) Antibody, followed by goat anti-rabbit-Alexa-488 (green). B. The same sections were incubated with Anti-NMDAR2B (GluN2B) (extracellular)-ATTO Fluor-594 Antibody (red). C. Merge of A and B demonstrates the ubiquitous colocalization of the GluN2A and GluN2B subunits in cells with neuronal profiles in this nucleus. Arrows point at an example of NR2A and NR2B co-expression.
- Expression of NR2A in rat hippocampusImmunohistochemical staining of rat hippocampal dentate gyrus with Anti-NMDAR2A (GluN2A) (extracellular) Antibody (#AGC-002). A. NMDAR2A (green) appears diffusely in the outer molecular layer of the dentate gyrus (Out Mol.) and in cells along the subgranular layer (arrows). B. Staining of parvalbumin (PV, red) identifies interneurons in the dentate gyrus. C. Confocal merge demonstrates localization of PV in some neurons with NMDAR2A.
