246. Minshall RD, Vandenbroucke EE, Holinstat M, et al. Role of protein kinase Czeta in thrombin-induced RhoA activation and inter-endothelial gap formation of human dermal microvessel endothelial cell monolayers. Microvascular Research. 2010;80(2):240–249.
However, they lacked expression of GLUT2 and expressed the transporters GLUT5, GLUT6, and GLUT8 to GLUT12, results that were validated using as controls RNA from CaCo-2 cells (for GLUT1 to GLUT5) and total human brain RNA (for GLUT6 to GLUT12) (Fig. 1G). Immunolocalization experiments confirmed expression of GLUT1 and absence of GLUT2 in the endothelial cells, and revealed no GLUT3 and GLUT4 immunostaining under conditions in which they showed positive immunoreactivity in cells expressing the respective transporters (data not shown). Therefore, the PCR, immunolocalization, and functional data (Km DHA ˜ 0. 7 mm, Km DOG/OMG ˜ 3–4 mm) support the conclusion that GLUT1 is the higher affinity DHA transporter expressed by human endothelial cells, a conclusion that is in line with the observation that GLUT1 is expressed at high levels in cerebral microvessel endothelial.
