Clone Host Grade Applications
Polyclonal Rabbit Serum E B
Most mammalian cells transport glucose through a family of membrane proteins known as glucose transporters. Molecular cloning of these glucose transporters has identified a family of closely related genes that encodes at least 7 proteins (GLUT-1 to GLUT-7, MW 40-60kD) and Sodium glucose co-transporter-1 (SGLT-1: 662aa, ~75kD). Individual members of this family have identical predicted secondary structures with 12 transmembrane domains. Both N- and C-termini are predicted to be cytoplasmic. Most differences in sequence homology exist within the four hydrophilic domains that may play a role in tissue-specific targeting. GLUT isoform differ in their tissue expression, substrate specificity and kinetic characteristics. GLUT-12 (human 617aa, monkey 621aa, ~ 50kD; ~30% homology with GLUT-4 and 40% with GLUT-10) is expressed in skeletal muscle, adipose tissue, and small intestine.
