Applications

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab55812 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 - 2 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 62 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 62 kDa).
ELISA Use at an assay dependent dilution.
ICC/IF 1/200.

Target

  • Function
    Important 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 specificity
    Ubiquitously 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 disease
    Defects 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 similarities
    Belongs to the NRAMP family.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Ubiquitinated by WWP2.
  • Cellular localization
    Endosome membrane.

  • ab55812 staining cultured ED18 rat primary hippocampal neurons by ICC/IF. The cultured cells were fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde for 5 minutes and blocked with 10% donkey serum in 0.1% PBS-0.3% TritonX for 30 minutes at 24°C. The cultured cells were then stained with ab55812 at 1/200 in 0.3% TritonX with 0.1% PBS and 10% donkey serum for overnight at 4°C. An Alexa Fluro 488 donkey anti-rabbit polyclonal antibody at 1/1000 was used as the secondary antibody. Nuclei were stained with 1.43µM Hoechst and can be observed in blue.

Thank you for contacting us. Ab55735 will recognize all 4 isotypes of this protein in human as will ab123085. I've noticed that the isoforms differ at the C-terminal end. The immunogens for Ab55812 and ab117544 are against the N-terminal region of ...
