The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
1/500 - 1/1000. Detects a band of approximately 46 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 46 kDa).
FunctionRiboflavin transporter. Riboflavin transport is Na(+)-independent but moderately pH-sensitive. Activity is strongly inhibited by riboflavin analogs, such as lumiflavin. Weakly inhibited by flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD). In case of infection by retroviruses, acts as a cell receptor to retroviral envelopes similar to the porcine endogenous retrovirus (PERV-A).
Tissue specificityWidely expressed. Highly expressed in the testis, placenta and small intestine. Expressed at lower level in other tissues.
Involvement in diseaseRiboflavin deficiency
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the riboflavin transporter family.
