General description

Solute carrier family 6 (neurotransmitter transporter, creatine), member 8/sodium- and chloride-dependent creatine transporter 1 (SLC6A8, CRTR, CT1) is required for the cellular uptake of creatine, which facilitates the storage of energy as ATP. Defects in SLC6A8/CRTR leads to creatine-deficiency syndrome evidenced by mental retardation and language delay.


Anti-SLC6A8 polyclonal antibody reacts with bovine, canine, human, mouse, rat, pig, and rabbit sodium- and chloride-dependent creatine transporter 1 proteins


Synthetic peptide directed towards the N terminal region of human SLC6A8


Anti-SLC6A8 polyclonal antibody is used to tag solute carrier family 6 (neurotransmitter transporter, creatine), member 8for detection and quantitation by Western blotting and in plasma by immunohistochemical (IHC) techniques. It is used as a probe to determine the roles of solute carrier family 6 (neurotransmitter transporter, creatine), member 8 in creatine homeostasis and the development of creatine-deficiency syndrome.

Physical form

Purified antibody supplied in 1x PBS buffer with 0.09% (w/v) sodium azide and 2% sucrose.
