That the near horizon geometry of the extremal? Reissner-Nordström black hole in 𝒩=2\mathcal{N}=2 4d supergravity in AdS 2×S 2AdS_2 \times S^2 was observed in

That the near horizon geometry of black branes in 11-dimensional supergravity is anti de Sitter spacetime times some compact space is apparently due to

A decent account is in

The observation that the resulting isometry group is the bosonic body of one of the orthosymplectic super groups is due to
