|Cat. No. 356-0P||
100 µg peptide, lyophilized. For reconstitution add 100 µl H2O to get a 1mg/ml solution in PBS. Then aliquot and store at -20°C to -80°C until use.
Control peptides should be stored at -20°C when still lyophilized!

The proton-linked transport of monocarboxylates across the plasma membrane plays a critical role in the metabolism and pH regulation of most cells. Fourteen different monocarboxylic acid transporters (MCTs) have been identified, so far. Only four of them (MCT 1-4) have been shown to actively transport the monocarboxylates pyruvate and lactate across the cell membrane.
MCT 1, also referrred to as Slc16 a1, and MCT 2 show differential expression in astrocyte subpopulations and blood vessels in the mammalian brain.
MCT4 is highly expressed in glycolytic cells, such as skeletal muscle fibers, astrocytes, leukocytes, chondrocytes, and some mammalian cell lineages.
