Incubation of intact human erythrocytes with [3H]palmitate labeled a protein with electrophoretic characteristics of the glucose transporter. This labeling occurred via a thioester linkage, since it was unaffected by organic solvent extraction, but was substantially removed as the hydroxamate upon treatment with neutral hydroxylamine. Immunoprecipitation of the labeled protein with a monoclonal antibody to the glucose transporter confirmed its identity.
