|Other Names||Natural resistance-associated macrophage protein 2, NRAMP 2, Divalent cation transporter 1, Divalent metal transporter 1, DMT-1, Solute carrier family 11 member 2, SLC11A2, DCT1, DMT1, NRAMP2|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP13801c was selected from the Center region of SLC11A2. 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.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Synonyms||DCT1, DMT1, NRAMP2|
|Function||Important in metal transport, in particular iron. Can also transport manganese, cobalt, cadmium, nickel, vanadium and lead. Involved in apical iron uptake into duodenal enterocytes. Involved in iron transport from acidified endosomes into the cytoplasm of erythroid precursor cells. May play an important role in hepatic iron accumulation and tissue iron distribution. May serve to import iron into the mitochondria.|
|Cellular Location||Isoform 2: Cell membrane; Multi- pass membrane protein. Early endosome|
|Tissue Location||Ubiquitously expressed. Isoform 1 is highly expressed in brain. Isoform 2 is highly expressed in spleen, thymus and pancreas. Isoform 3 and isoform 4 are abundantly expressed in duodenum and kidney.|

This gene encodes a member of the solute carrier family 11protein family. The product of this gene transports divalent metalsand is involved in iron absorption. Mutations in this gene areassociated with hypochromic microcytic anemia with iron overload. Arelated solute carrier family 11 protein gene is located onchromosome 2. Multiple transcript variants encoding differentisoforms have been found for this gene.
