|Calculated MW||55 KDa|
|Other Names||Sodium-dependent dopamine transporter, DA transporter, DAT, Solute carrier family 6 member 3, Slc6a3|
|Target/Specificity||Synthetic phospho-peptide corresponding to amino acid residues surrounding Thr53 conjugated to KLH.|
|Format||Prepared from rabbit serum by affinity purification via sequential chromatography on phospho- and dephosphopeptide affinity columns.|
|Antibody Specificity||Specific for the ~55k glycosylated form of the DAT proteinphosphorylated at Thr53. Relative mobility may vary depending on the state of glycosylation ofthe DAT protein. Immunolabeling of the DAT band is blocked by preadsorption with thephospho-peptide used as antigen but not by the corresponding dephospho-peptide.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||Phospho-Thr53 Dopamine Transporter (DAT) Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|

The dopamine transporter (DAT) is responsible for the reaccumulation of dopamine after it has been released. DAT antibodies and antibodies for other markers of catecholamine biosynthesis are widely used as markers for dopaminergic and noradrenergic neurons in a variety of applications including depression, schizophrenia, Parkinson’s disease and drug abuse (Kish et al., 2001; Zhu et al., 2000; Zhu et al., 1999). Levels of DAT protein expression are altered by chronic drug administration (Wilson et al., 1996). It has been shown that phosphorylation at Thr53 directly affects dopamine influx and amphetamine-stimulated substrate efflux, indicating that the Thr53 residue plays a major role in transport activity (Foster et al., 2012).
