Clone Host Grade Applications
Polyclonal Rabbit Affinity Purified E B IH IF
Most mammalian cells transport glucose through a family of membrane proteins known as glucose transporters. Molecular cloning of these glucose transporters has identified a family of closely related genes that encodes at least 7 proteins (Glut-1 to Glut-13, Mol. Wt. 40-60kD) and Sodium glucose co-trasporter-1 (SGLT-1, 662aa, ~75kD). Individual member of this family have identical predicted secondary structures with 12 transmembrane domains. Both N and C-termini are predicted to be cytoplasmic. Most differences in sequence homology exist within the four hydrophilic domains that may play a role in tissue-specific targeting. Glut isoforms differ in their tissue expression, substrate specificity and kinetic characteristics.
Catalog #G3900-65D
ApplicationsSuitable for use in ELISA, Western Blot, Immunofluorescence and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.
Recommended DilutionsWestern Blot: 1-10ug/ml using ECL. The antibody has been shown to react with a protein band of about 60kD in the rat jejunum membranes that is slightly larger than that reported in human GLUT 5 (50-55kD). In rat kidney, a protein of ~42kD was detected.
ELISA: 1:1000- 1:10000. Use G3900-65G control peptide to coat ELISA plates at 1ug/ml.
Immunohistochemistry: See reference (2).
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
