Immunoblot on crude membrane fractions from whole mouse (MBM) and rat (RBM) brain and from human hippocampus [HBM(H)], cerebral cortex [HBM(Cx)] and cerebellum [HBM(Cb)] probed with N449/73 (left) and N52A/42 (right) TC supe.
Bulk Order Anti-Slc18a2/VMAT2 Antibody
Vesicular neurotransmitter transporters sequester the transmitters into synaptic vesicles (Erickson et al., 1996). The vesicular monoamine transporter 2 (VMAT2) is responsible for catecholamine and serotonin storage in central synapses. Antibodies specific for VMAT have been used to monitor expression of the transporter during development and in aging and can be effectively used as a marker for monoamine terminals (Haycock et al., 2003; Witkovsky et al., 2005).
Purified by Protein A chromatography
Fusion protein amino acids 42-132 (first lumenal domain) of mouse Slc18a2 (accession number Q66L40) produced recombinantly in E. Coli
Human, Mouse, Rat
Aliquot and store at ≤ -20°C for long term storage. For short term storage, store at 2-8°C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the vial prior to removing the cap.
Produced by in vitro bioreactor culture of hybridoma line followed by Protein A affinity chromatography. Purified mAbs are >90% specific antibody.
10 mM Tris, 50 mM Sodium Chloride, 0.065% Sodium Azide pH 7.125
Does not cross-react with Slc18a1/VMAT1 or Slc18a3/VAChT
Each new lot of antibody is quality control tested by western blot on rat whole brain lysate and confirmed to stain the expected molecular weight band.
These antibodies are to be used as research laboratory reagents and are not for use as diagnostic or therapeutic reagents in humans.
