The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 2.5 µg/ml. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with citrate buffer pH 6 before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
FunctionFacilitative 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 specificityLiver, insulin-producing beta cell, small intestine and kidney.
Involvement in diseaseFanconi-Bickel syndrome
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the major facilitator superfamily. Sugar transporter (TC 2.A.1.1) family. Glucose transporter subfamily.
Post-translational modificationsN-glycosylated; required for stability and retention at the cell surface of pancreatic beta cells.

ab111117 staining Glucose Transporter GLUT2 in human MCF7 cells by Immunocytochemistry/ Immunofluorescence. Cells were fixed in paraformaldehyde, blocked with 1% BSA for 30 minutes at 22°C and then incubated with ab111117 at a 1/200 dilution. The secondary used was ab7123, Donkey polyclonal Secondary Antibody to Goat IgG - H&L (TR), pre-adsorbed, used at a 1/200 dilution.
