|Other Accession||NP_055395.2, 29988|
|Calculated MW||50819 Da|
|Other Names||Solute carrier family 2, facilitated glucose transporter member 8, Glucose transporter type 8, GLUT-8, Glucose transporter type X1, SLC2A8, GLUT8, GLUTX1|
|Format||0.5 mg/ml in Tris saline, 0.02% sodium azide, pH7.3 with 0.5% bovine serum albumin|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||GLUT8 / SLC2A8 Antibody (C-Term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Insulin-regulated facilitative glucose transporter. Binds cytochalasin B in a glucose-inhibitable manner. Seems to be a dual-specific sugar transporter as it is inhibitable by fructose (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. Cytoplasmic vesicle membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein Note=Principally intracellular. May move between intracellular vesicles and the plasma membrane. The dileucine internalization motif is critical for intracellular sequestration (By similarity)|
|Tissue Location||Highly expressed in testis, but not in testicular carcinoma. Lower amounts present in most other tissues|
