Dr. Rosenberg has created a polyclonal antibody against the N terminus of GLT-1 (anti-nGLT-1), which detects both variant forms of GLT-1, GLT-1a and GLT-1b, generated in New Zealand White rabbits (Research Genetics) and characterized previously (Chen et al., 2002, 2004). This antibody was generated based on the published sequences for rat GLT-1a and GLT-1b (amino acids 1–15; GenBank accession number AF451299). This antibody has been shown to be useful in detecting EAAT2 (the human homolog of GLT-1) in tissue from human brain.
