OCTN1 (SLC22A4) Transporter Assay
The OCTN1 transporter is a cation/zwitterion sodium dependent high affinity carnitine transporter. It is localized widely in many organs including the kidneys, pancreas, prostate, skeletal muscle and heart.
BiovIVT offers OCTN1 substrate and inhibition assays for transport in polarized mammalian cells. We offer a wide range of studies including single concentration screens up to full kinetic studies to determine the IC50 determinations for OCTN1 inhibitors, as well as Vmax and Km studies for OCTN1 substrates.
