Polyclonal Rabbit Affinity Purified B IP IH
Facilitated glucose transport by mammalian cells is not a property of a single protein but an activity associated with a family of structurally related proteins. Glucose transporter 4 is a insulin-responsive glucose transporter . It belongs to solute carrier family 2, member 1. Insulin alters the subcellular localization of GLUT4 vesicles in human muscle, and that this effect is impaired equally in insulin-resistant subjects with and without diabetes. A similar pattern of defects cause insulin resistance in human adipocytes.Human insulin resistance involves a defect in GLUT4 traffic and targeting leading to accumulation in a dense membrane compartment from which insulin is unable to recruit GLUT4 to the cell surface.
