  • Function
    Important in metal transport, in particular iron. Can also transport manganese, cobalt, cadmium, nickel, vanadium and lead. Involved in apical iron uptake into duodenal enterocytes. Involved in iron transport from acidified endosomes into the cytoplasm of erythroid precursor cells. May play an important role in hepatic iron accumulation and tissue iron distribution.
  • Tissue specificity
    Ubiquitously expressed. Isoform 1 is highly expressed in brain. Isoform 2 is highly expressed in spleen, thymus and pancreas. Isoform 3 and isoform 4 are abundantly expressed in duodenum and kidney.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in SLC11A2 are a cause of hypochromic microcytic anemia (HCMA) [MIM:206100]. The disease is characterized by an abnormal hemoglobin content in the erythrocytes which are reduced in size. It may be hereditary or acquired. Mutations in SLC11A2 are associated with progressive liver iron overload and normal to moderately elevated serum ferritin levels.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the NRAMP family.
  • Post-translational
    Ubiquitinated by WWP2.
  • Cellular localization
    Endosome membrane.

  • Western blot against tagged recombinant protein fragment (immunogen peptide) using ab55735 DMT1 antibody at 1ug/ml. Predicted band size of immunogen is 33 kDa

  • IHC-Fr image of DMT1 staining on mouse duodenum using ab55735 (1:1000). The sections were fixed with paraformaldehyde and permeabilized using 0.1% TritonX in 0.1% PBS. The slides were blocked using 10 % donkey serum for 1 hour at 24°C. ab55735 was diluted 1:1000 using 0.1% TritonX with 0.1x PBS- 10% Donkeys and incubated with the slides at 4°C for 24 hours. The secondary antibody used was donkey polyclonal against mouse IgG conjugated to Alexa Fluor 568 (1:1000)

  • DMT1 antibody (ab55735) used in immunohistochemistry at 3ug/ml on formalin fixed and paraffin embedded human endometrium cancer.
  • Overlay histogram showing SH-SY5Y cells stained with ab55735 (red line). The cells were fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde (10 min) and then permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Tween for 20 min. The cells were then incubated in 1x PBS / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine to block non-specific protein-protein interactions followed by the antibody (ab55735, 1µg/1x106 cells) for 30 min at 22°C. The secondary antibody used was DyLight® 488 goat anti-mouse IgG (H+L) (ab96879) at 1/500 dilution for 30 min at 22°C. Isotype control antibody (black line) was mouse IgG2a [ICIGG2A] (ab91361, 1µg/1x106 cells) used under the same conditions. Acquisition of >5,000 events was performed. This antibody gave a positive signal in SH-SY5Y cells fixed with 80% methanol/permeabilized in 0.1% PBS-Tween used under the same conditions.

Thank you for contacting us. Ab55735 will recognize all 4 isotypes of this protein in human as will ab123085. I've noticed that the isoforms differ at the C-terminal end. The immunogens for Ab55812 and ab117544 are against the N-terminal region of DMT1 so I would expect them recognize all isoforms as well. At this time do not offer products that recognize the specific isoforms of this target. I hope this information is helpful to you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.
