Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab69819 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 0.5 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 55 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 55 kDa).Can be blocked with Human SLC17A5 peptide (ab178604). Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.
IHC-P Use a concentration of 4 - 8 µg/ml.


  • Function
    Transports glucuronic acid and free sialic acid out of the lysosome after it is cleaved from sialoglycoconjugates undergoing degradation, this is required for normal CNS myelination. Mediates aspartate and glutamate membrane potential-dependent uptake into synaptic vesicles and synaptic-like microvesicles. Also functions as an electrogenic 2NO(3)(-)/H(+) cotransporter in the plasma membrane of salivary gland acinar cells, mediating the physiological nitrate efflux, 25% of the circulating nitrate ions is typically removed and secreted in saliva.
  • Tissue specificity
    Found in fetal lung and small intestine, and at lower level in fetal skin and muscle. In the adult, detected in placenta, kidney and pancreas. Abundant in the endothelial cells of tumors from ovary, colon, breast and lung, but is not detected in endothelial cells from the corresponding normal tissues.
  • Involvement in disease
    Salla disease
    Infantile sialic acid storage disorder
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the major facilitator superfamily. Sodium/anion cotransporter family.
  • Cellular localization
    Cell membrane. Cytoplasmic vesicle, secretory vesicle, synaptic vesicle membrane. Lysosome membrane.
