General description

Solute carrier family 39 (Zinc transporter), member 6/zinc transporter 6 (SLC39A6, LIV1, ZIP6) is a mediator of zinc (Zn2+) transport and intracellular zinc homeostasis. SLC39A6/LIV1 is involves in important processes such as epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT) in human pancreatic, breast, and prostate cancer cells. SLC39A6/LIV1 has been shown to be a critical mediator responsible for HDACi-induced apoptosis.


Anti-SLC39A6 polyclonal antibody reacts with bovine, canine, human, mouse, and rat solute carrier family 39 (Zinc transporter), member 6 proteins.


Synthetic peptide directed towards the middle region of human SLC39A6


Anti-SLC39A6 polyclonal antibody is used to tag solute carrier family 39 (Zinc transporter), member 6/zinc transporter 6 for 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 39 (Zinc transporter), member 6/zinc transporter 6 in intracellular zinc homeostasis, epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT) in cancer cells, and in HDACi-induced apoptosis.

Physical form

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

Biochem/physiol Actions

Zinc is an essential cofactor for hundreds of enzymes. It is involved in protein, nucleic acid, carbohydrate, and lipid metabolism, as well as in the control of gene transcription, growth, development, and differentiation. SLC39A6 belongs to a subfamily of proteins that show structural characteristics of zinc transporters.
