|Product Overview:||2-Deoxyglucose Assay Kit (Fluorometric) is a quantitative fluorometric determination of 2-deoxyglucose.|
|Description:||Glucose uptake is an important biological process for studying cell signaling and glucose metabolism. Among many different methods available for measuring glucose uptake, 2-deoxyglucose (2-DG) has been widely used because of its structural similarity to glucose. As with glucose, 2-DG can be taken up by glucose transporters, and metabolized to 2-DG-6-phosphate (2-DG6P). 2-DG6P, however, cannot be further metabolized, and thus accumulates in the cells. The accumulated 2-DG6P is, therefore, directly proportional to 2-DG (or glucose) uptake by cells. In 2-Deoxyglucose Assay Kit (Fluorometric), the accumulated 2-DG6P is enzymatically oxidized and coupled to PicoProbe, which generates fluorescence in the presence of NADPH. This easy to use non-radioactive kit can detect glucose uptake as low as 50 pmol/well and can be used for a variety of cell types.|
|Applications:||Measurement of glucose uptake in response to insulin, growth factors, cytokines, mitogens and nutrients, etc. Analysis of glucose metabolism and cell signaling in various cell types. Screening anti-diabetic drugs.|
