SLC17A8 Antibody (N-term) Blocking peptide

Synthetic peptide

Product Information
Primary Accession Q8NDX2
Clone Names 100416121
Peptide ID 100416121
Additional Information
Gene ID 246213
Other Names Vesicular glutamate transporter 3, VGluT3, Solute carrier family 17 member 8, SLC17A8, VGLUT3
Target/Specificity The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP13493a was selected from the N-term region of SLC17A8. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.
Format Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.
StorageMaintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.
PrecautionsThis product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.

This gene encodes a vesicular glutamate transporter. Theencoded protein transports the neurotransmitter glutamate intosynaptic vesicles before it is released into the synaptic cleft.Mutations in this gene are the cause of autosomal-dominantnonsyndromic type 25 deafness. Alternate splicing results inmultiple transcript variants.
