Rabbit anti Glucose Transporter 4 antibody (4670-1704) used to evaluate GLUT4 expression in rat soleus muscle by western blotting
Image caption:
(A) Basal and insulin-stimulated glucose uptakes in rat soleus muscle in contralateral non-immobilized and immobilized limbs at the end of 6-h hindlimb immobilization. Muscles were dissected out at the end of 6-h unilateral hindlimb immobilization. All muscles were incubated in glucose-free medium in the absence or presence (50 or 10,000 μU/mL) of insulin for 20 min, followed by the measurement of 2-deoxyglucose uptake. Values are means ± SE (n = 5–6). *P <0.05 versus contralateral non-immobilized limbs with same insulin concentration. † P <0.05 versus 0 μU/mL insulin. (B) Total GLUT4 protein concentration at the end of 6-h hindlimb immobilization. Muscles were dissected out and frozen at the end of 6-h unilateral hindlimb immobilization. Muscle lysates were separated with SDS-PAGE, and blots were analyzed for GLUT4 protein content. Values are means ± SE (n = 8).

    • Rabbit anti Glucose Transporter 4 antibody recognizes human Solute carrier family 2, facilitated glucose transporter member 4, also known as glucose transporter 4 or GLUT4. GLUT4 is a 509 amino acid ~50 kDa multi-pass transmembrane protein located primarily in the perinuclear region and is translocated to the plasma membrane where it is rapidly reinternalized. Rabbit anti Glucose Transporter 4 antibody does not react with HEP G2 type glucose transporter in human erythrocytes, rat brain or other tissues that do not exhibit sensitivity to insulin.

      GLUT4 is the insulin-regulated glucose transporter found in adipose tissue and striated muscle, responsible for glucose disposal. The stimulation of glucose uptake by insulin requires translocation of the GLUT4 glucose transporter from intracellular storage sites to the cell surface. Activation of phosphatidylinositol-3-OH kinase (PI3K) is required for this trafficking event, but it is not sufficient to produce GLUT4 translocation. Human insulin resistance involves a defect in GLUT4 traffic and targeting leading to accumulation in a dense membrane compartment from which insulin is unable to recruit GLUT4 to the cell surface.
