Reconstitution InstructionsSpin vial briefly before opening. Reconstitute in 100 µL sterile-filtered, ultrapure water. Centrifuge to remove any insoluble material.
Storage InstructionsAfter reconstitution keep aliquots at -20°C for higher stability or at 2-8°C with an appropriate antibacterial agent. Glycerol (1:1) may be added for additional stability. Avoid repetitive freeze/thaw cycles.
Batch NumberPlease see item label.
Expiration Date12 months after date of receipt (unopened vial).
Glycine receptor is a neurotransmitter-gated ion channel. When bound to its ligand, glycine, chloride conductance is increased and consequently inhibits neuronal firing. It is a pentameric receptor composed of alpha and beta subunits and localises to the cell junction, synapse and postsynaptic cell membrane. Defects in GLRA1 cause startle disease (STHE) which is also known as hereditary hyperekplexia or congenital stiff-person syndrome.
