Clonal BRIN-BD11 cells were produced by electrofusion of NEDH rat islet B-cells with immortal RINm5F cells. Western blotting analysis revealed that unlike RINm5F, novel BRIN-BD11 cells expressed high levels of the glucose transport protein GLUT-2, coupled with a rapid and sustained uptake for D-glucose, significantly greater than RINm5F after only 5 min (p
