Rabbit anti Human Glucose Transporter 5 antibody
recognizes Solute carrier family 2, facilitated glucose transporter member 5, also known as the Glucose 5 transporter, "glucose transporter type 5, small intestine", GLUT5 or Fructose transporter. Glucose Transporter 5 catalyses the uptake of D-fructose into cells. Glucose Transporter 5 is a 501 amino acid ~55 kDa multiple pass transmembrane glycoprotein protein expressed in the plasma membrane and found mainly in intestinal tissue, kidney, and spermatozoa. (UniProt: P22732
Increased intestinal levels of GLUT5 are seen in type 2 diabetes.
