ZIP8/SLC39A8 (E2L8E) Rabbit mAb recognizes endogenous levels of total ZIP8/SLC39A8 protein.
Monoclonal antibody is produced by immunizing animals with recombinant protein specific to the amino terminus of human ZIP8/SLC39A8 protein.
Zinc transporter zinc-and iron-related protein 8 (ZIP8) is encoded by the SLC39A8 gene and is a member of the solute carrier gene (SLC) superfamily (1). As a membrane protein, ZIP8 functions to transport manganese, cadmium, and zinc across the plasma membrane (2). Metal ions are essential elements that are required cofactors for proteins, including enzymes and transcription factors. Maintenance of proper metal ion homeostasis is required for normal mammalian tissue development and function. Mice lacking SLC39A8 reveal a critical role of ZIP8 in organogenesis in multiple tissues, including the brain and kidney, during development (3,4). Mutations in SLC39A8 are linked to autosomal-recessive forms of intellectual disability, suggesting that altered ZIP8-dependent metal ion regulation may contribute to human neuronal developmental diseases (5).
