Indirect ELISA Use a concentration of 0.5 - 1 µg/ml.
ICC/IF Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml.


  • Function
    Facilitative glucose transporter. This isoform likely mediates the bidirectional transfer of glucose across the plasma membrane of hepatocytes and is responsible for uptake of glucose by the beta cells; may comprise part of the glucose-sensing mechanism of the beta cell. May also participate with the Na(+)/glucose cotransporter in the transcellular transport of glucose in the small intestine and kidney.
  • Tissue specificity
    Liver, insulin-producing beta cell, small intestine and kidney.
  • Involvement in disease
    Fanconi-Bickel syndrome
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the major facilitator superfamily. Sugar transporter (TC 2.A.1.1) family. Glucose transporter subfamily.
  • Post-translational
    N-glycosylated; required for stability and retention at the cell surface of pancreatic beta cells.

Anti-Glucose Transporter GLUT2 antibody images

  • ICC/IF image of ab54460 stained MCF7 cells. The cells were 4% formaldehyde fixed (10 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab54460, 5µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM.
