Alomone Labs has developed two innovative platforms for studying protein-protein interaction and/or protein co-localization in complex immunostaining or immunoprecipitation protocols:
ATTO-Conjugated Antibodies: These antibodies can be used in immunohistochemistry (IHC) and immunocytochemistry (ICC) with same species antibodies.
Save time and resources with ONE antibody.
Benefits of immunostaining with ATTO-conjugated antibodies:
✓ Direct immuno-fluorescence
✓ Secondary antibodies are not necessary
✓ Ideal for immuno-colocalization with same species/host antibodies
Guinea Pig-Raised Antibodies: Antibodies raised in guinea pig can be used with any non-guinea pig second species antibodies (e.g. antibodies raised in mouse, rabbit, goat, etc.) in complex immunostaining or immunoprecipitation protocols. Our line of guinea pig raised antibodies can be combined with any of our rabbit-raised or ATTO-conjugated antibodies in complex immunostaining protocols.
The GLUT protein family is a member of the major facilitator superfamily of membrane transporters and is encoded by the SLC2 genes. GLUT proteins contain 12 membrane-spanning domains, an N-linked glycosylation site, and intracellular NH2 and COOH termini. In addition there are several conserved residues and motifs designated “sugar transporter signatures”.
To date, 14 GLUT isoforms have been identified and divided into 3 different classes based on sequence similarity and structural and functional characteristics. GLUT4 together with GLUT 1-3 and 14 belong to Class I.
