Detection of KCC4/SLC12A7 in HEK293 Human Cell Line Transfected with Human SLC12A7 and eGFP by Flow Cytometry. HEK293 human embryonic kidney cell line transfected with either (A) human SLC12A7 or (B) human MRGPRF and eGFP was stained with Mouse Anti-Human KCC4/SLC12A7 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB9030) followed by Allophycocyanin-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # F0101B). Quadrant markers were set based on control antibody staining (Catalog # MAB002). View our protocol for Staining Membrane-associated Proteins.

Cation chloride cotransporters, including the potassium-chloride cotransporters (KCCs), are involved in the electroneutral movement of ions across the plasma membrane. SLC12A7 contains 12 membrane-spanning segments, 8 phosphorylation sites, 7 of which are in the C terminus, and 4 potential N-glycosylation sites. It is important for potassium recycling by siphoning potassium ions after their exit from outer hair cells into supporting Deiters cells, where potassium enters the gap junction pathway.
