Western blot analysis of extracts from various cell lines using MCT1/SLC16A1 Antibody (upper) and GAPDH (D16H11) XP® Rabbit mAb #5174 (lower). The absence of MCT1/SLC16A1 protein in NCI-H3255 cells is consistent with mRNA expression profiles reported in public bioinformatic databases, confirming specificity of the antibody for MCT1/SLC16A1.

MCT1/SLC16A1 Antibody recognizes endogenous levels of total human MCT1/SLC16A1 protein.
Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Gly472 of human MCT1/SLC16A1 protein. Antibodies are purified by peptide affinity chromatography.
MCT1, also known as MOT1, is a multi-pass transmembrane monocarboxylate transporter (MCT) protein, encoded by the gene SLC16A1 (1,2). MCT1 is reported to be expressed in multiple tissues and cell types, including erythrocytes, immune cells, and both cardiac and skeletal myocytes. The primary role of MCT1 is to facilitate proton-coupled transport of monocarboxlates (e.g., lactate, pyruvate, ketone bodies) across the plasma membrane in response to cellular metabolic demands (1). The regulation of monocarboxylate flux by MCT1 has been identified as a possible metabolic biomarker in various diseases, including neurodegenerative diseases, ischemia, and cancer (2-5). Inhibition of MCT1 has thus been proposed as a potential therapeutic treatment of cancer (5,6).
