Rabbit anti Rat NMDA Receptor NR2B antibody recognizes the ~180 kDa NMDA (N-methyl-D-aspartate) receptor NMDAR2B subunit.

NMDA receptors are a class of ionotropic glutamate receptors. NMDA channels have been shown to be involved in long term potentiation, an activity dependent increase in the efficiency of synaptic transmission thought to underlie certain kinds of memory and learning. NMDA receptor channels are heteromers composed of the key receptor subunit NMDAR1 (GRIN1) and 1 or more of the 4 NMDAR2 subunits: NMDAR2A (GRIN2A), NMDAR2B (GRIN2B), NMDAR2C (GRIN2C), or NMDAR2D (GRIN2D).
