Detects human Glut1. Stains human Glut1-transfected NS0 cells, but not NS0 control transfectants. Although
Human Glut1 Antibody detects Glut1 on the surface of T cells (1, 2), it does not detect it on erythrocytes (5). The reason for this discrepancy is not understood, but may be related to conformational or post-translational modification differences.

Detection of Glut1 in HepG2 Human Cell Line by Flow Cytometry. HepG2 human hepatocellular carcinoma cell line was stained with Mouse Anti-Human Glut1 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB1418, filled histogram) or isotype control antibody (Catalog # MAB0041, open histogram), followed by Allophycocyanin-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # F0101B).
Detection of Glut1 in Jurkat Human Cell Line by Flow Cytometry. Jurkat human acute T cell leukemia cell line either (A) untreated or (B) cultured in nutrient-depleted media was stained with Mouse Anti-Human Glut1 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB1418, filled histogram) or isotype control antibody (Catalog # MAB0041, open histogram), followed by Phycoerythrin-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # F0102B).
Glut1 in HepG2 Human Hepatocellular Carcinoma Cell Line. Glut1 was detected in immersion fixed HepG2 human hepatocellular carcinoma cell line using Mouse Anti-Human Glut1 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB1418) at 10 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL007) and counterstained with DAPI(blue). Specific staining was localized to the plasma membrane. View our protocol for Fluorescent ICC Staining of Cells on Coverslips.

Glut1 belongs to the facilitative glucose transport protein family that comprises 13 members. It is an integral membrane protein with 12 transmembrane domains and is expressed at variable levels in many tissues including brain endothelial cells, CD8+ T cells, and erythrocytes (1‑4). Glut1 is a major glucose transporter that mediates glucose transport across the mammalian blood‑brain barrier.
