|Application ||WB, E|
|Other Accession||NP_001073942, 122937339|
|Calculated MW||53743 Da|
|Application Notes||MFSD2A antibody can be used for detection of MFSD2A by Western blot at 1 - 2 µg/mL.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||MFSD2B antibody can be stored at 4℃ for three months and -20℃, stable for up to one year. As with all antibodies care should be taken to avoid repeated freeze thaw cycles. Antibodies should not be exposed to prolonged high temperatures.|
|Precautions||MFSD2B Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Cation-dependent lipid transporter that specifically mediates export of sphingosine-1-phosphate in red blood cells and platelets (PubMed:29045386). Sphingosine-1-phosphate is a signaling sphingolipid and its export from red blood cells into in the plasma is required for red blood cell morphology (By similarity). Does not transport lysophosphatidylcholine (LPC) (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. Note=Localizes to the cell membrane and intracellular membranes|

MFSD2B Antibody: Multidrug transporters, such as MFSD2B, are membrane proteins that expel a wide spectrum of cytotoxic compounds from the cell and render cells resistant to multiple drugs. Major Facilitator Superfamily (MFS) members are capable of transporting various substrates such as sugars, polyols, drugs, neurotransmitters, amino acids, peptides, and inorganic anions, although most members are substrate-specific. MFSD2B is closely related to MFSD2A, which is expressed in many tissues and is highly induced in liver and brown adipose tissue (BAT) during fasting, playing a major role in the induction of MFSD2A expression during adaptive thermogenesis. Unlike MFSD2A, MFSD2B is expressed in few tissues and at relatively low levels, and is not induced during fasting, suggesting that MFSD2B may play other roles.
