Target

  • Function
    Insulin-regulated facilitative glucose transporter.
  • Tissue specificity
    Skeletal and cardiac muscles; brown and white fat.
  • Involvement in disease
    Diabetes mellitus, non-insulin-dependent
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the major facilitator superfamily. Sugar transporter (TC 2.A.1.1) family. Glucose transporter subfamily.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Sumoylated.
  • Cellular localization
    Cell membrane. Endomembrane system. Cytoplasm, perinuclear region. Localizes primarily to the perinuclear region, undergoing continued recycling to the plasma membrane where it is rapidly reinternalized. The dileucine internalization motif is critical for intracellular sequestration.
