Polyclonal Rabbit Affinity Purified E B IH IF
Monocarboxylates such as lactate and pyruvate play an important role in cellular metabolism. Lactic acid is produced as the end product of glycolysis. Some tissues, such as white skeletal muscle and red blood cells, use this pathway to generate most of their ATP under normal physiological conditions. All tissues become dependent on this pathway during abnormal conditions such as hypoxia and ischaemia. Lactic acid, produced during normal glycolysis, must be transported out of cells to sustain high rate of glycolysis. Failure to export lactic acid leads to accumulation of cellular lactic acid, followed by an increase in pH, leading to inhibition of glycolysis. Some tissues, such as brain, heart and red skeletal muscle, readily oxidize lactic acid. These tissues must import lactic acid into the cells. Lactic acid transport is mediated by a group of proton-linked membrane transporters called monocarboxylic acid transporters (MCTs). At least 9 MCT-related proteins (MCT1-9) have been identified in mammals that are expressed in a tissue specific manner.
