Data Sheet

Background: The metabotropic glutamate receptors (mGluRs) are divided into 3 groups on the basis of sequence homology, putative signal transduction mechanisms, and pharmacological properties. Group II and group III mGluRs are linked to inhibition of the cyclic AMP cascade, but differ in their agonist selectivity. mGluR7 is a member of Group III. Immunohistochemistry and in situ hybridization showed that mGluR7 expresses in various sites in the nervous system.

Application: Functional assays

Figure 1. Dose-dependent stimulation of calcium flux upon treatment with ligand, measured with MultiscreenTM Calcium 1.0 No Wash Assay Kit (Multispan MSCA01). Figure 2. Dose- dependent response of forskolin-stimulated intracellular cAMP level upon treatment with ligand, measured with MultiscreenTM TR-FRET cAMP 1.0 No Wash Assay Kit (Multispan MSCM01). Figure 3. Receptor expression on cell surface measured by flow cytometry (FACS) using an anti-FLAG antibody. Thin line: parental cells; thick line: receptor-expressing cells.
