Technical Data
NRAMP2 (Natural Resistance-associated Macrophage Protein 2, NRAMP 2, Divalent Cation Transporter 1, Divalent Metal Transporter 1, DMT-1, DCT1, DMT1, SLC11A2, OK/SW-cl.20)
Solute carrier family 11, member 2 (SLCA2) also known as divalent metal ion transporter 1 (DMT1) imports Fe2+ via a proton-coupled, membrane potential dependent manner. It can also transport a variety of other divalent metal cations including Mn2+, Co2+, Cu2+, and Zn2+ but iron appears to be its most important physiological substrate. SLC11A2 has been demonstrated on the apical membrane of duodenal enterocytes, transferrin cycle endosomes in erythroid precursors, hepatocytes where it has been postulated to be involved in non-transferrin-bound iron uptake, and placenta where it has been implicated in transfer of iron from mother to fetus.

Suitable for use in ELISA, Western Blot and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
