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.


  • Function
    Involved 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 specificity
    Strongly 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 similarities
    Belongs to the ATP-dependent AMP-binding enzyme family.
  • Cellular localization
    Membrane. Cell membrane > sarcolemma. In heart is exclusively located on the sarcolemma in areas juxtaposed with small blood vessels where it colocalizes CD36.

  • 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.
  • Anti-SLC27A6 antibody (ab84183) at 1 µg/ml + MCF7 membrane lysate at 10 µg

    HRP conjugated anti-Rabbit IgG at 1/50000 dilution

    Predicted band size: 70 kDa
    Observed band size: 70 kDa

  • 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.
