Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab84183 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 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 70 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 70 kDa). Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.
IHC-P 1/100.
ICC/IF Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml.


  • FunctionInvolved in translocation of long-chain fatty acids (LFCA) across the plasma membrane. Thought to function as the predominant fatty acid protein transporter in heart.
  • Tissue specificityStrongly expressed in heart and localizes to cardiac myocytes. Expressed at moderate levels in placenta, testis, and adrenal glands. Expressed at very low levels in kidney, bladder and uterus.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the ATP-dependent AMP-binding enzyme family.
  • Cellular localizationMembrane. Cell membrane > sarcolemma. In heart is exclusively located on the sarcolemma in areas juxtaposed with small blood vessels where it colocalizes CD36.

Anti-SLC27A6 antibody images

  • Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded sections) analysis of human pineal tissue labelling SLC27A6 with ab84183 at 1/100. A Cy3-conjugated donkey anti-rabbit IgG (1/200) was used as the secondary antibody. Positive staining shown in the membrane and cytoplasm of cell bodies of pinealocytes and their processes. Magnification: 20X. Exposure time: 0.5 - 2.0 seconds. Left - DAPI. Middle - SLC27A6. Right - Merge.

  • ICC/IF image of ab84183 stained HeLa cells. The cells were 100% methanol fixed (5 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab84183, 5µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was ab96899 Dylight 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/250 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM.
