Supplied as a liquid in PBS, pH 7.4, 0.1% BSA, 0.1% sodium azide.
Synthetic peptide corresponding to 17aa located near the C-terminal, cytoplasmic domain of rat NRAMP2 conjugated with KLH. This sequence is 100% homologous with mouse Nramp2 with IRE and is absent in NRAMP2 without IRE. No significant sequence homology exists with NRAMP1.
Preparation and Storage
May be stored at 4 degree C for short-term only. For long-term storage, aliquot and store at -20 degree C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20 degree C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
Other Notes
Small volumes of anti-Slc11a1 antibody vial(s) may occasionally become entrapped in the seal of the product vial during shipment and storage. If necessary, briefly centrifuge the vial on a tabletop centrifuge to dislodge any liquid in the container`s cap. Certain products may require to ship with dry ice and additional dry ice fee may apply.

Iron is an essential element for a variety physiological process. A variety of proteins are involved in the transport of iron. Most dietary iron exists in the form of ferric iron complexes which must be reduced to yield ferrous ion before it can be taken up by protein transporters such as DCT1 (divalent cation transporter)/NRAMP2/DMT1. These transporters are especially active in small intestine where most dietary iron absorption is conducted. Ferrous Fe (II) is very unstable at physiological pH and quickly oxidized to ferric Fe (III). Highly specialized transmembrane electron transport system, maintained by ferric reductases, is required for the availability of intracellular ferrous ion. A second member of NRAMP family, termed NRAMP2/DMT/DCT1 (Divalent Metal ion Transporter 1 or Divalent Cation Transporter 1), has been identified (human, rat and mouse 568aa, ~65% identity with NRAMP1). NRAMP2 expression is more ubiquitous and has been detected in most tissues. NRAMP2 expression is more pronounced in brain, thymus, proximal intestine, kidney and bone marrow. It is dramatically up regulated by iron starvation in the intestine. NRAMP2 gene produces two alternatively spliced transcripts generated by alternative use of two 3' exons encoding distinct C-termini of the protein as well as distinct 3' untranslated regions (UTRs). One Nramp2 mRNA contains an iron-responsive element (IRE) in its 3'UTR. The IRE is an RNA secondary structure present in the 5'- or the 3'-UTR of animal mRNAs encoding proteins involved in iron metabolism. The second Nramp2 splice isoform (without-IRE, isoform II) encodes a protein in which the C-terminal 18aa of the IRE form (with IRE, isoform I) is replaced by a novel 25aa segment and codes for a distinct 3' UTR lacking the IRE. The two isoforms are differentially localized and regulated in GI tract and kidney. It has been demonstrated that the Nramp2 gene is mutated (Gly185 to Arg at TM4) in both the mk and Belgrade (b) animal models exhibiting a severe microcytic hypochromic anemia marked by a defect in iron absorption by intestinal cells and in erythroid iron use.

SLC11A1: Divalent transition metal (iron and manganese) transporter involved in iron metabolism and host resistance to certain pathogens. Macrophage-specific membrane transport function. Controls natural resistance to infection with intracellular parasites. Pathogen resistance involves sequestration of Fe(2+) and Mn(2+), cofactors of both prokaryotic and eukaryotic catalases and superoxide dismutases, not only to protect the macrophage against its own generation of reactive oxygen species, but to deny the cations to the pathogen for synthesis of its protective enzymes. Belongs to the NRAMP family.
