Gene Information

human ... SLC16A3(9123)

General description

The gene SLC16A3 (solute carrier family 16 member 3) is mapped to human chromosome 17q25.3. It belongs to the SLC16A family and is a transmembrane protein. SLC16A3 is expressed in testis, small intestine, lung, brain, heart, kidney, and spleen. SLC16A3 is commonly referred to as MCT4 (monocarboxylate transporter 4).


Monocarboxylate transporter 4 recombinant protein epitope signature tag (PrEST)


Anti-SLC16A3 antibody produced in rabbit has been used in: immunohistochemistry, flow cytometry, and immunofluorescence (IF) confocal microscopy to stain human bronchial epithelial cells (HBECs)-short hairpin RNA (shRNA) targeting TP53(shp53 (shp53)-V5-TMPRSS11B cells.

Biochem/physiol Actions

MCTs (monocarboxylate transporters) are important for transporting lactate and other monocarboxylates across the cell membrane. MCT4/SLC16A3 (solute carrier family 16 member 3) is involved in the transport of γ-hydroxybutyric acid and L-lactate. SLC16A3 is up-regulated in triple negative breast cancer. It is responsible for maintenance of pH, lactate secretion and non-oxidative metabolism of glucose in cancer cells. In similar manner, androgens induce glycolytic metabolism and lactate export in prostate cancer cells by regulating SLC16A3 expression.

Features and Benefits

Prestige Antibodies® are highly characterized and extensively validated antibodies with the added benefit of all available characterization data for each target being accessible via the Human Protein Atlas portal linked just below the product name at the top of this page. The uniqueness and low cross-reactivity of the Prestige Antibodies® to other proteins are due to a thorough selection of antigen regions, affinity purification, and stringent selection. Prestige antigen controls are available for every corresponding Prestige Antibody and can be found in the linkage section.

Every Prestige Antibody is tested in the following ways:
  • IHC tissue array of 44 normal human tissues and 20 of the most common cancer type tissues.
  • Protein array of 364 human recombinant protein fragments.
