Anti-Serotonin transporter antibody (ab79328)


  • Product nameAnti-Serotonin transporter antibody
    See all Serotonin transporter primary antibodies
  • Description
    Guinea pig polyclonal to Serotonin transporter
  • Tested applicationsIHC (PFA fixed), ICC/IFmore details
  • Species reactivity
    Reacts with: Rat
  • Immunogen

    Synthetic peptide corresponding to the carboxy-terminus of the cloned rat Serotonin transporter.

  • Positive control
    • Tissue sections from the Rat central nervous system. This antibody gave a positive result when used in the following methanol fixed cell lines: PC12
  • General notes

    ab79328 antiserum has been tested on tissue sections from the central nervous system. The staining pattern obtained with ab79328 corresponds to the pattern described using antiserum to serotonin itself. The serotonin transporter immunoreactivity corresponds to what has been described using other antibodies to the serotonin transporter. Preabsorption of ab79328 with the immunogen peptide completely abolishes the immunostaining.



Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab79328 in the following tested applications.

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

ICC/IF 1/100.


  • FunctionSerotonin transporter whose primary function in the central nervous system involves the regulation of serotonergic signaling via transport of serotonin molecules from the synaptic cleft back into the pre-synaptic terminal for re-utilization. Plays a key role in mediating regulation of the availability of serotonin to other receptors of serotonergic systems. Terminates the action of serotonin and recycles it in a sodium-dependent manner.
  • Tissue specificityExpressed in platelets (at protein level).
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the sodium:neurotransmitter symporter (SNF) (TC 2.A.22) family. SLC6A4 subfamily.
  • Post-translational
    Glycosylated; modification with sialylated N-glycans is a requirement for transporters to associate with each other and to function as homooligomeric forms.
    Phosphorylated at Ser-611, Thr-613 and Thr-616.
  • Cellular localizationCell membrane. Endomembrane system. Endosome membrane. Translocates from intracellular locations to the plasma membrane. Density of transporter molecules on the plasma membrane is itself regulated by serotonin.

Anti-Serotonin transporter antibody images

  • ICC/IF image of ab79328 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 ab79328 at 1/100 dilution overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was DyLight® 488 goat anti- guinea pig (ab96959) IgG (H+L) used at a 1/250 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.
