Characterization and Modulation of Glucose Uptake in a Human Blood–Brain Barrier Model


The blood–brain barrier (BBB) plays a key role in limiting and regulating glucose access to glial and neuronal cells. In this work glucose uptake on a human BBB cell model (the hCMEC/D3 cell line) was characterized. The influence of some hormones and diet components on glucose uptake was also studied. 3H-2-deoxy-d-glucose ([3H]-DG) uptake for hCMEC/D3 cells… (More)
