  • Function

    Serotonin transporter whose primary function in the central nervous system involves the regulation of serotonergic signaling via transport of serotonin molecules from the synaptic cleft back into the pre-synaptic terminal for re-utilization. Plays a key role in mediating regulation of the availability of serotonin to other receptors of serotonergic systems. Terminates the action of serotonin and recycles it in a sodium-dependent manner.
  • Tissue specificity

    Expressed in platelets (at protein level).
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the sodium:neurotransmitter symporter (SNF) (TC 2.A.22) family. SLC6A4 subfamily.
  • Post-translational

    Glycosylated; modification with sialylated N-glycans is a requirement for transporters to associate with each other and to function as homooligomeric forms.
    Phosphorylated at Ser-611, Thr-613 and Thr-616.
  • Cellular localization

    Cell membrane. Endomembrane system. Endosome membrane. Translocates from intracellular locations to the plasma membrane. Density of transporter molecules on the plasma membrane is itself regulated by serotonin.

  • ab130130 stained PC12 cells. The cells were 4% formaldehyde fixed for 10 minutes at room temperature and then incubated in 1%BSA / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1hour at room temperature to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab130130 at 5µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (pseudo-colored green) was Donkey Anti-Goat IgG H&L (Alexa Fluor® 488) preadsorbed (ab150133) used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1hour at room temperature. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (pseudo-colored red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1hour at room temperature. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (pseudo-colored blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM for 1hour at room temperature.

    Developed using the ECL technique.

    Predicted band size: 70 kDa
