  • Function
    Cytochalasin B-sensitive carrier. Seems to function primarily as a fructose transporter.
  • Tissue specificity
    Expressed in small intestine, and at much lower levels in kidney, skeletal muscle, and adipose tissue.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the major facilitator superfamily. Sugar transporter (TC 2.A.1.1) family. Glucose transporter subfamily.

  • IHC image of Glucose Transporter 5 GLUT5 staining in human kidney RCC formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue section, performed on a Leica Bond system using the standard protocol F. The section was pre-treated using heat mediated antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH6, epitope retrieval solution 1) for 20 mins. The section was then incubated with ab87847, 1µg/ml, for 15 mins at room temperature and detected using an HRP conjugated compact polymer system. DAB was used as the chromogen. The section was then counterstained with haematoxylin and mounted with DPX.

    For other IHC staining systems (automated and non-automated) customers should optimize variable parameters such as antigen retrieval conditions, primary antibody concentration and antibody incubation times.
