In this study, we used the four-state carrier model for brain GLUT1 to examine whether cellular glucose metabolism can be inferred from the accumulation of the fluorescent glucose analogue 6-NBDG, which is increasingly employed for indirect determination of glucose transport and utilization in neurons and astrocytes. However, our findings show that the relation between 6-NBDG uptake and glucose transport and utilization configures antiport not symport of the two substrates.
