Transporter Proteins

The membranes surrounding cells, organelles, and vesicles represent a barrier through which electrochemical gradients can be created. While certain molecules, such as water and urea, are freely diffusible through membranes, even these molecules are imported or exported via transporters.

We offer antibodies recognizing a variety of different transporters including: vGlut1, vGlut2, VACht, VGAT, KCC2…
