(anti-Human and others as indicated)

RDI Divison of Fitzgerald Industries Intl  offers a wide line of  antibodies. Since no one antibody works best for all applications (neutralization, blotting, histochemistry, ELISA, etc), we offer many different types of antibodies to help solve this problem. Please inquire for other applications or types of antibodies not listed below.

Rabbit anti-Mouse Glut-4    cat#RDI-MGLUT4abrX    $469.00/vial 100ug IgG

Antigen/regions: M (CT, 12 aa);

Antibody Cross reactivity: M, R, H

Control Peptide (100 µg): #RDI-MGLUT4-CP $156.00

Rabbit anti-Glucose Transporter-4   (IgG fraction) Rat/Human/Mouse

cat# RDI-MGLUT4abrX  $469.00/vial

Presentation: 100ug affinity pure antibody LYOPHILIZED from 1mg/ml PBS stock with 0.1% BSA and 0.02% merthiolate).

Reconstitution: Add 0.1ml sterile DI water or buffer. Let set at least 30 minutes at room temp. Mix well. If desired, centrifuge for 1-2 minutes at 1000rpm to concentrate material in vial. It is not recommended to store diluted solutions. Avoid repeated freeze and thaw.

Reconstitution: All peptide/antibody received in solution or reconstituted from Lyophilized vials should be stored frozen at -20oC or below in suitable aliquots. It is not recommended to store diluted solutions. Avoid repeated freeze and thaw.

Specificity: The antibody has detected GLUT-4 in rat skeletal muscle, heart and adipose tissues. It also recognizes the mouse and human GLUT-4 but shows no cross-reactivity to Hep G2 type transporter from rat brain or other Glucose transporters. The mouse Glut-4 peptide (aa 499-510) sequence shows 100% identity with the corresponding rat and human (aa 498-509) sequences.

USE: Western Blotting (1-10 ug/ml for affinity pure using Chemiluminescence technique). The antibody identified a major band at about 40-43kDa using the GLUT-4 positive control prepared from purified rat adipocyte membranes.\

ELISA (1:10K; using 1ug/ml control peptide/well).

Immunoprecipitations:not tested

Histochemistry & Immunofluorescence:We recommend the testing of affinity purified antibody at 2-10 ug/ml on frozen sections of rat tissues and 3T3 L1 adipocytes.

PRODUCT CODE         RDI-CBL243   $375.00

HOST                            Rabbit

IMMUNIZING ANTIGEN Partially purified GLUT-4

PURIFICATION METHOD Affinity purified on a Sepharose-4B CNBr linked peptide column

SPECIFICITY The affinity purified antisera is specific for human glucose transporter-4 from muscle and adipose tissue. The antisera does not cross-react with GLUT-1. The molecular weight of the glucose transporter precipitated by the serum is approximately 46 kDa.

APPLICATIONS *Western blot analysis of GLUT-4 activity in adipose and muscle tissue (5ug/ml)

                                *Immunoprecipitation of GLUT-4 (5ug/ml)

KNOWN SPECIESCROSS REACTIVITY The antisera is known to recognize rat and mouse GLUT-4


PRESENTATION The monoclonal is presented at a concentration of 100µg/ml in phosphate buffered saline containing 10mM sodium azide. We recommend that each laboratory determine an optimum working titre for use in its particular application.

For use within 1 month of purchase store at +4oC, for long term storage aliquot antibody into small volumes and store at -20oC.

For Research Use Only For Research Use Only. Not supplied for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures
