The ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) is a widely used application for detecting and quantifying proteins and antigens from various samples. Target-specific ELISA kits are available from a variety of manufacturers and can help streamline your immunodetection experiments.
Ready-to-use ELISA kits are available for the detection of EAAT2, an alias of the protein, solute carrier family 1 member 2. The official gene symbol is SLC1A2. The kits can detect several species variants of the protein, including: human, mouse, rat, bovine, chicken, primate, guinea pig, fish, and other mammalian. The protein, with a mass of 62.1 kDa and length of 574 residues, is reported to be membrane-associated. It is a member of the Dicarboxylate/amino acid:cation symporter (DAACS) (TC 2.A.23) family, SLC1A2 subfamily and may be known by other names, including: EIEE41, EAAT2, sodium-dependent glutamate/aspartate transporter 2, glutamate/aspartate transporter II, excitotoxic amino acid transporter 2, and excitatory amino acid transporter 2, and HBGT.
