The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 0.5 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 53 kDa. Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.
FunctionProton-linked monocarboxylate transporter. Catalyzes the rapid transport across the plasma membrane of many monocarboxylates.
Tissue specificityMost highly expressed in kidney, followed by retina, lung, and testis. Very weakly expressed in brain and liver. Also detected in lens.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in SLC16A12 are a cause of cataract juvenile with microcornea and glucosuria (CJMG) [MIM:612018]. Renal glucosuria is defined by elevated glucose level in the urine without hyperglycemia and without evidence of morphological renal anomalies.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the major facilitator superfamily. Monocarboxylate porter (TC 2.A.1.13) family.
