  • FunctionFacilitative glucose transporter. This isoform likely mediates the bidirectional transfer of glucose across the plasma membrane of hepatocytes and is responsible for uptake of glucose by the beta cells; may comprise part of the glucose-sensing mechanism of the beta cell. May also participate with the Na(+)/glucose cotransporter in the transcellular transport of glucose in the small intestine and kidney.
  • Tissue specificityLiver, insulin-producing beta cell, small intestine and kidney.
  • Involvement in diseaseFanconi-Bickel syndrome
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the major facilitator superfamily. Sugar transporter (TC 2.A.1.1) family. Glucose transporter subfamily.
  • Post-translational
    N-glycosylated; required for stability and retention at the cell surface of pancreatic beta cells.
  • Cellular localizationMembrane.
