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. 40-80 kD) and Sodium glucose co-transporter- 1 (SGLT-1, 662 amino acids; ~75 kD). 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 #G3900-65L
ApplicationsSuitable for use in ELISA, Western Blot ,Immunofluorescence and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.
Recommended DilutionWestern Blot: 1-10ug/ml (ECL). Rat glut-5 is ~60kD in rat jejunum membranes that is slightly larger that that reported for human glut-5 (50-55kD). As opposed to human tissues, rat glut-5 mRNA has not been detected in rat testis, adipose tissues and skeletal muscle. In rat kidney, a protein of ~42kD was detected.
ELISA: 0.5-1ug/ml. Control peptide can be used to coat ELISA plates at 1ug/ml.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
Control peptide G3900-65M
Storage and StabilityMay be stored at 4°C for short-term only. For long-term storage, aliquot and store at -20°C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20°C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
Clone TypePolyclonal
FormSupplied as liquid in PBS, pH 7.4, 0.1% BSA, 40% glycerol.
