Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) is the primary inhibitory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system, causing a hyperpolarization of the membrane through the opening of a Cl− channel associated with the GABAA receptor (GABAA-R) subtype. GABA plasma membrane transporters (GATs) influence synaptic neurotransmission by high-affinity uptake and release of GABA. To date, four distinct GABA transporters have been identified: GAT-1, GAT-2, GAT-3, and BGT-1. GAT-1, the most abundant of the transporters, is found predominantly in neurons, but also in some specialized glia (Minelli et al., 1995). GAT-1 is thought to play a key role in epileptogenesis (Zhao et al. 2003).
Gat1, Gabt1, Gat-1, Gat1, Solute carrier family 6 member 1, GAT-1
Ab raised in
Peptide corresponding to amino acid residues from the C-terminal region of rat GAT-1.
Western Blot, immuno-histo-chemistry
The antibody has been directly tested for reactivity in Western blots with rat tissue. It is anticipated that the antibody will also react with mouse tissue based on the fact that this species has 100% homology with the amino acid sequence used as antigen.
Suspention, pH, azide
100 uL in 10 mM HEPES (pH 7.5), 150 mM NaCl, 100 ug per mL BSA and 50% glycerol.
GAT-1 antibody can be stored at -20 grades C and is stable at -20 grades C for at least 1 year.

This antibody needs to be stored at + 4°C in a fridge short term in a concentrated dilution. Freeze thaw will destroy a percentage in every cycle and should be avoided.
If you buy Antibodies supplied by proscience they should be stored frozen at - 24°C for long term storage and for short term at + 5°C.
