The cellular localization of alpha-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxazole propionate glutamate receptor, GluR3, was identified using antibodies that recognize the N-terminus of the predicted polypeptide sequence of GluR3. Regional immunoblot analysis of monkey brain homogenates identified a protein of approximately 102,000 mol. wt that was enriched in hypothalamus. Immunocytochemistry demonstrated that GluR3 was enriched within the hypothalamic magnocellular neurosecretory nuclei and axons of the… CONTINUE READING
