Technical Data
M4470-12C
MCT2 (Monocarboxylate Transporter 2, MCT 2, Solute Carrier Family 16 Member 7, SLC16A7)
Description:
Lactic acid and pyruvate transport across plasma membranes is catalyzed by members of the proton-linked monocarboxylate transporter (MCT) family, which has been designated solute carrier family 16. Each MCT appears to have slightly different substrate and inhibitor specificities and transport kinetics, which are related to the metabolic requirements of the tissues in which it is found. MCT2 is a high affinity transporter that catalyzes the rapid transport of many monocarboxylates such as lactate, pyruvate, branched-chain oxo acids derived from leucine, valine and isoleucine, the ketone bodies acetoacetate, beta-hydroxybutyrate and acetate across the plasma membrane.

Applications:
Suitable for use in ELISA and Western Blot. Other applications not tested.
