There are two types of black brane solutions in 11-dimensional supergravity, one of dimension $2+1$, one of dimension 5+1. These are thought to correspond to a fundamental 2-brane and its EM dual, called the
The M2-brane carries electric charge under the supergravity C-field. The M5-brane is the dual magnetic charge.
