  • FunctionImportant in metal transport, in particular iron. Can also transport manganese, cobalt, cadmium, nickel, vanadium and lead. Involved in apical iron uptake into duodenal enterocytes. Involved in iron transport from acidified endosomes into the cytoplasm of erythroid precursor cells. May play an important role in hepatic iron accumulation and tissue iron distribution.
  • Tissue specificityUbiquitously expressed. Isoform 1 is highly expressed in brain. Isoform 2 is highly expressed in spleen, thymus and pancreas. Isoform 3 and isoform 4 are abundantly expressed in duodenum and kidney.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in SLC11A2 are a cause of hypochromic microcytic anemia (HCMA) [MIM:206100]. The disease is characterized by an abnormal hemoglobin content in the erythrocytes which are reduced in size. It may be hereditary or acquired. Mutations in SLC11A2 are associated with progressive liver iron overload and normal to moderately elevated serum ferritin levels.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the NRAMP family.

Anti-DMT1 antibody [4C6] images

  • ICC/IF image of DMT1 staining on Caco2 cells using ab117544 (1:1000). The cells were fixed with paraformaldehyde and permeabilized using 0.1% TritonX in 0.1% PBS. The cells were blocked using 10 % donkey serum for 1 hour at 24°C. ab117544 was diluted 1:1000 using 0.1% TritonX with 0.1x PBS- 10% Donkeys and incubated with the slides at 4°C for 24 hours. The secondary antibody used was donkey polyclonal against mouse IgG conjugated to Alexa Fluor 488 (undiluted)
