Dopamine transporter belongs to a family of biogenic amine transporters that include the norepinephrine, serotonin (SERT), and vesicular monoamine transporters. These transporters are members of a larger Na+/Cl--dependent neurotransmitter transporter family.
Solute carrier family 6 member 3 (SLC6A3) is mapped to human chromosome 5p15.33. It is also known as the dopamine transporter (DAT) and has a zinc binding site and 12 transmembrane region.
synthetic peptide corresponding to amino acids 42-59 of rat dopamine transporter conjugated to KLH. This sequence is highly conserved in mouse DAT (single amino acid substitution) and has lower homology (72% identity) to human DAT.
Anti-Dopamine Transporter antibody produced in rabbit is suitable for western blot analysis at a working concentration of 0.5-1μg/mL using rat brain extract (cytosolic S1 fraction) and HEK-293T cells expressing human DAT1. It was used as a primary antibody in western analysis for dopamine transporter in several studies.
Applications in which this antibody has been used successfully, and the associated peer-reviewed papers, are given below.

DAT regulates dopaminergic-neurotransmission. It is localized on presynaptic nerve terminals and mediates the active reuptake of dopamine from the synapse, thus terminating the neurotransmitter signal. It is the primary site for the action of neurotoxins, such as MPTP, and the drugs of abuse, cocaine and amphetamine. It has been implicated in a number of dopamine-related disorders, including attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), bipolar disorder, clinical depression, and alcoholism. DAT may also have a role in selective vulnerability of nigrostriatal dopaminergic neurons in Parkinson′s disease as it can transport dopamine neurotoxins.
