Gene Information

human ... SLC18A2(6571)

Specificity

Recognizes Vesicular Monoamine Transporter 2 (VMAT2). An antibody made to the C-terminal VMAT2 peptide detected a major band at ~55 kDa in postnuclear supernatants of CHO transfected with VMAT2 and not in wild type cells (Peter et al. 1995; Nirenberg et al. 1995). Some additional bands, both higher and lower molecular weight, were also detected and remain unaffected by the inclusion of protease inhibitors. Higher molecular weight bands may represent glycosylated VMAT2 (Peter et al. 1995; Nirenberg et al. 1995, Liu et al. 1994). VMAT2 has been localized in adrenal chromaffin cells, sympathetic ganglion cells, enterochromaffin-like cells of the stomach and in CNS (Peter et al. 1995; Nirenberg et al. 1995; Nirenberg et al. 1996). May recognize human due to the 92% homology between rat and human VMAT2.

Immunogen

A 13 amino acid C-terminal peptide sequence from rat VMAT2 (Liu et al. 1992). This peptide is predicted to be cytoplasmic.
