Rabbit anti Human dopamine transporter antibody recognizes an epitope within the C-terminal region of dopamine transporter (DAT), also known as solute carrier family 6.
DAT is principally expressed in the presynaptic membrane of dopaminergic nerve terminals, where it mediates the rapid removal of dopamine from the synaptic cleft after neuronal stimulation. As such, DAT plays an important role in regulating the availability of dopamine in the synaptic cleft and thus in modulating the physiological functions of dopamine.
The reuptake of dopamine by DAT is inhibited by psychostimulants such as cocaine and amphetamine.
