We determined subcellular localization of GLUT-1, GLUT-3, and GLUT-5 as human monocytes differentiate into macrophages in culture, and effects of the activating agents N-formyl-methionyl-leucyl-phenylalanine (fMLP) and phorbol myristate acetate (PMA). Western blot analysis demonstrated progressively increased GLUT-1, rapidly decreased GLUT-3, and a delayed(More)
