Glucose Transporter GLUT4 (SLC2A4 or GLUT4) is an insulin-sensitive glucose transporter which facilitate insulin-stimulated glucose uptake in adipose tissue, skeletal muscle and cardiac tissues (that specifically express GLUT4). GLUT4 is a 12-transmembrane domain/ multi-pass membrane protein localized in endomembrane system as well as cytoplasm near perinuclear region, and facilitates glucose transport in the direction of glucose gradient. This transporter localizes to intracellular organelles (endosomes) in unstimulated cells and translocates to the cell surface following insulin stimulation via TBC1D4 phosphorylation. Transgenic mice lacking or overexpressing GLUT4 respectively decrease or increase whole-body insulin sensitivity, suggesting its role in maintenance of glucose homeostasis, and accordingly, under obesity conditions, reduction of GLUT4 gene expression is directly related to insulin resistance development. Inflammatory cytokines produced by the adipose tissue including TNF-alpha, IL-6 etc have been related to reduce GLUT4 expression and defective GLUT4 is an underlying cause of NIDDM.

Western Blot: Glut4 Antibody [NBP1-49533SS] - Total protein from 3T3-L1 mouse embryonic fibroblast adipose-like cell line, separated on a 4-12% gel by SDS-PAGE, transferred to nitrocellulose membrane and blocked in 5% non-fat milk for 1h at room temperature. The membrane was probed with anti-Glut4 0.5 ug/ml in non-fat milk.
FAQs for Glut4 Antibody (NBP1-49533). (Showing 1 - 6 of 6 FAQs).
NBP1-49533 and NBP1-49533R are listed as being raised against a synthetic peptide made to an internal portion of the human GLUT4 protein (between residues 480-509 or 480-530 for NBP1-49533R), but since the protein is only 509aa in length, I am curious to know if the description as internal means that the actual sequence does not include the very c-terminal part, or if the listed sequence range is incorrect and the actual sequence in more internal?
We highly appreciate your feedback on the immunogen info on the datasheet of our Glucose Transporter GLUT4 antibody #NBP1-49533, and yes, the immunogen sequence is from human Glucose Transporter GLUT4 protein between residues 480-509. Similarly, the sequence for Glucose Transporter GLUT4 Antibody [DyLight 550] (NBP1-49533R) would also be the same (between residues 480-509). It is certainly C-terminal region and we apologize for the mistake committed on our end about writing it as internal region.
Do you happen to sell peptide for this antibody?
We do have a peptide for this particular product. The catalog number is NBP1-49533PEP.
Would you please help confirm if NBP1-49533 has been tested for IHC with frozen sections?
NBP1-49533 has been validated in WB, ICC/IF and IHC-P, but has not been validated in IHC-Fr yet. However, because this antibody worked very well in ICC/IF, I strongly believe that it will work in IHC-Fr also. Please see the protocol for IHC-Fr which is utilized in our lab.

Regarding NBP1-49533AF647, Glut4-Alexa Fluor 647, the data sheet declares that the immunogen is aa480-509. Uniport says it’s a cytoplasmatic region of the protein. Is this antibody suitable for flow? Has it been validated for this application? Can you provide the suggested protocol, specifically the fixation and permeabilzation part? Any available references for this antibody and application?
This antibody was validated in flow cytometry. We used our intracellular flow protocol found here: http://www.novusbio.com/support/support-by-application/flow-cytometry/protocol.html. The results from this testing can be seen on the unconjugated part datasheet here: http://www.novusbio.com/Glut4-Antibody_NBP1-49533.html.
Regarding the use of NBP1-49533, is this anti Glut4 Antibody validated for extracellular domain of Glut4 in for flow cytometry? The data sheet shows images if intracellular and additional images of flow images that are not specified.
NBP1-49533 is not specific for the extracellular domain of Glut4 becuase the immunogen of the antibody pertains to the cytoplasmic C-terminus of Glut4: Immunogen: A synthetic peptide made to a C-terminal portion of the human Glucose Transporter GLUT4 protein (between residues 480-509) [UniProt P14672]. Amino acids 480-509 correspond to the cytoplasmic tail of this protein, accordingly, NBP1-49533 has only been used for labeling the intracellular staining in FLOW cytometry.The only other option we have is MAB86541, which is made by our sister company R&D systems. They used their protocol for "Staining Membrane-associated Proteins" to product the Flow results, so if you have any other questions abotu this product I would contact them for the most accurate and proper information: https://www.rndsystems.com/resources/protocols/flow-cytometry-protocol-staining-membrane-associated-proteins-suspended-cells
