|Other Names||Natural resistance-associated macrophage protein 1, NRAMP 1, Solute carrier family 11 member 1, SLC11A1, LSH, NRAMP, NRAMP1|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP8514c was selected from the Center region of human SLC11A1. 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||LSH, NRAMP, NRAMP1|
|Function||Divalent transition metal (iron and manganese) transporter involved in iron metabolism and host resistance to certain pathogens. Macrophage-specific membrane transport function. Controls natural resistance to infection with intracellular parasites. Pathogen resistance involves sequestration of Fe(2+) and Mn(2+), cofactors of both prokaryotic and eukaryotic catalases and superoxide dismutases, not only to protect the macrophage against its own generation of reactive oxygen species, but to deny the cations to the pathogen for synthesis of its protective enzymes.|
|Cellular Location||Membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Macrophages; peripheral blood leukocytes, lung, spleen and liver|

NRAMP1, also known as SLC11A1, is a member of the solute carrier family 11 (proton-coupled divalent metal ion transporters) family and encodes a multi-pass membrane protein. The protein functions as a divalent transition metal (iron and manganese) transporter involved in iron metabolism and host resistance to certain pathogens. Mutations in this gene have been associated with susceptibility to infectious diseases such as leprosy and tuberculosis, and inflammatory diseases such as Crohn disease and rheumatoid arthritis. Alternatively spliced variants that encode different protein isoforms have been described but the full-length nature of only one has been determined.
