Benefits of using these glucose uptake assays
• Highly sensitive
- Colourimetric LoD: 10 pmol/well
- Fluorometric LoD: 50 pmol/well
• Compatible across all mammalian species
• Easy to use
1. Colourimetric assay detection
2DG6P is oxidised to generate NADPH, which is determined by an enzymatic recycling amplification reaction.
2. Fluorometric assay detection
2DG6P is enzymatically oxidised and coupled to a highly sensntive probe, which generates fluorescence in the presence of NADPH.
(a) 2-DG6P Standard curve (b), (c) and (d) 2-DG uptake in human adipocytes, Hela Cells and 3T3-L1 cells respectively. Assays were performed following kit protocol.I=Insulin;P=Phloretin.
