The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 57 kDa. Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.
FunctionMay be a carrier that transport small solutes by using chemiosmotic ion gradients.
Tissue specificityExpressed at very low levels in all tissues tested.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in MFSD8 are the cause of neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis type 7 (CLN7) [MIM:610951]. A form of late infantile neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis. CNL are a clinically and genetically heterogeneous group of neurodegenerative disorders characterized by the intracellular accumulation of autofluorescent lipopigment storage material in different patterns ultrastructurally. The patterns most often observed CLN7 are mixed combinations of granular, curvilinear, fingerprint, and rectilinear profiles. The clinical course includes progressive dementia, seizures, and progressive visual failure.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the major facilitator superfamily.
