Glutamine Synthase (GLUL) is primarily expressed in astrocytes in the brain. The main function of GLUL is to catalyze the condensation of glutamate and ammonia to form glutamine. GLUL plays an important role in the metabolic regulation of glutamate, detoxification of brain ammonia, as well as recycling of neurotransmitters. GLUL expression in endothelial cells may be involved in cell migration during pathological angiogenesis. Upregulation of astrocytic GLUL to uptake excess ammonia and glutamate may play a neuroprotective role during neuroinflammation.Product Details

- Recommended Usage
Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by Western blotting. For Western blotting, the suggested use of this reagent is 1.0 - 10 µg per mL. For immunohistochemistry on formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue sections, a concentration range of 0.5 - 10 µg/mL for chromogenic staining and 0.5 - 5.0 µg/mL for fluorescent staining is suggested. For immunocytochemistry, a concentration range of 2.0 - 10 μg/mL is recommended. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.
