General description

MCT8 is an integral membrane protein that is associated with the plasma membrane. A member of the Major Facilitator Superfamily, MCT8 serves as a proton-linked monocarboxylate transporter that catalyzes the rapid transport of monocarboxylates and ketone bodies across the plasma membrane. Expression of MCT8 is greatest in liver and kidney.


Recognizes mouse Monocarboxylate Transporter 8.


A 19 amino acid peptide sequence within the cytoplasmic, C-terminus of mouse MCT8. The immunogen sequence is 94% conserved in rat and 89% in human MCT8 and shows no significant sequence homology with other MCT family members.


Anti-Monocarboxylate Transporter 8 Antibody is an antibody against Monocarboxylate Transporter 8 for use in ELISA & WB.
