GLUT1 Blocking Peptide (#BLP-GT021) is the original antigen used for immunization during Anti-GLUT1 Antibody (#AGT-021) generation. The blocking peptide binds and ‘blocks’ Anti-GLUT1 primary antibody, this makes it a good negative reagent control to help confirm antibody specificity in western blot and immunohistochemistry applications. This control is also often called a pre-adsorption control.

- Expression of Glucose Transporter 1 in mouse striatum and wall of lateral ventricleImmunohistochemical staining of perfusion-fixed frozen mouse brain sections using Anti-GLUT1 Antibody (#AGT-021), (1:400), followed by donkey-anti-rabbit-Cy3 secondary antibody (red). GLUT1 staining appears in blood vessels (right-pointing arrows) in the striatum (ST) and in the wall of the lateral ventricle (LV, left-pointing arrow). Cell nuclei were stained with DAPI (blue).
