About this book


This volume explores methods used to examine the structure-function relationship of glucose transporters both in vitro and ex vivo. Chapters in this book cover topics such as expression and purification of glucose transporters in heterologous expression systems, crystal structure determination, glucose transport activity assays in cellular and synthetic model systems, investigation of the GLUT4 membrane trafficking machinery by novel labeling strategies combined with advanced fluorescence microscopy methods, and tracking GLUT2 translocation by live cell imaging. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.

Cutting-edge and comprehensive, Glucose Transport: Methods and Protocols is a valuable resource that helps researchers with determining specific roles of different GLUTs in various organisms.
