|Calculated MW||H=72 KDa|
|Other Names||Low affinity sodium-glucose cotransporter, Sodium/glucose cotransporter 3, Na(+)/glucose cotransporter 3, Solute carrier family 5 member 4, SLC5A4, SAAT1, SGLT2|
|Target/Specificity||This SLC5A4 antibody is generated from a rabbit immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 601-635 amino acids from the C-terminal region of human SLC5A4.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||SLC5A4 Antibody (C-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Has electrogenic activity in response to glucose, and may function as a glucose sensor (PubMed:13130073, PubMed:17110502, PubMed:20421923, PubMed:22766068). Mediates influx of sodium ions into the cell but does not transport sugars (PubMed:13130073, PubMed:22766068). Also potently activated by imino sugars such as deoxynojirimycin (DNJ) (PubMed:17110502, PubMed:20421923, PubMed:22766068).|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in skeletal muscle, where it may localize to the neuromuscular junction (at protein level) (PubMed:13130073). Expressed in small intestine where it may localize to cholinergic neurons of the submucosal plexus and myenteric plexus (at protein level) (PubMed:13130073). Detected in kidney (at protein level) (PubMed:22766068)|
