Properties

Applications

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab41751 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
WB Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 56 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 60 kDa).
IHC-P 1/50.
ICC/IF Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml.
  • Application notes
    Is unsuitable for IHC-FoFr.
  • Target

    • Function
      Transports L-glutamate and also L- and D-aspartate. Essential for terminating the postsynaptic action of glutamate by rapidly removing released glutamate from the synaptic cleft. Acts as a symport by cotransporting sodium.
    • Tissue specificity
      Highly expressed in cerebellum, but also found in frontal cortex, hippocampus and basal ganglia.
    • Involvement in disease
      Defects in SLC1A3 are the cause of episodic ataxia type 6 (EA6) [MIM:612656]. EA6 is characterized by episodic ataxia, seizures, migraine and alternating hemiplegia.
    • Sequence similarities
      Belongs to the sodium:dicarboxylate (SDF) symporter (TC 2.A.23) family. SLC1A3 subfamily.
    • Post-translational
      modifications
      Glycosylated.
    • Cellular localization
      Membrane.

    • Anti-EAAT1 antibody (ab41751) at 1 µg/ml + Human brain tissue lysate - total protein (ab29466) at 10 µg

      Secondary
      IRDye 680 Conjugated Goat Anti-Rabbit IgG (H+L) at 1/10000 dilution

      Performed under reducing conditions.

      Predicted band size : 60 kDa
      Observed band size : 56 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
    • ICC/IF image of ab41751 stained PC12 cells. The cells were 100% methanol fixed (5 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab41751, 5µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM. This antibody also gave a positive result in 4% PFA fixed (10 min) PC12 cells at 5µg/ml.
    • Immunohistochemical analysis of frozen mouse dorsal cortex tissue. EAAT1 (red) was stained with ab41751 at 1/500 dilution.

    Thank you for contacting us.

    I have checked the protein sequence homology between mouse, human and drosophila. Unfortunately none of our antibody's immunogen falls in the homologous sequence so we unfortunately can not suggest the cross reacti...

    Thank you for your inquiry.
    I cannot recommend ab41751 since this antibody was not experimentally tested to work with rat and mouse yet and we therefore cannot guarantee this.
    Both antibodies have not been tested in in-cell WB and are therefo...
