FunctionTerminates the action of GABA by its high affinity sodium-dependent reuptake into presynaptic terminals.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the sodium:neurotransmitter symporter (SNF) (TC 2.A.22) family. SLC6A1 subfamily.
DomainThe PDZ domain-binding motif is involved in the interaction with MPP5.
Cellular localizationCell membrane. Membrane. Localized at the plasma membrane and in a subset of intracellular vesicles. Localized at the presynaptic terminals of interneurons.

ab426 staining the GABA transporter 1 in Mouse retinal tissue sections by Immunohistochemistry (IHC-Fr - frozen sections). Tissue was fixed with paraformaldehyde, and blocked with 5% serum for 1 hour at 20°C. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/2000 in PBST) for 12 hours at 4°C. An Alexa Fluor®488-conjugated Donkey anti-rabbit polyclonal (1/1000) was used as the secondary antibody.

Predicted band size: 67 kDa
Observed band size: 74 kDa why is the actual band size different from the predicted?
Exposure time: 30 seconds
GABA Transporter 1/ GAT 1 contains a number of potential glycosylation sites (SwissProt) which may explain its migration at a higher molecular weight than predicted.
