FunctionInsulin-regulated facilitative glucose transporter.
Tissue specificitySkeletal and cardiac muscles; brown and white fat.
Involvement in diseaseDiabetes mellitus, non-insulin-dependent
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the major facilitator superfamily. Sugar transporter (TC 2.A.1.1) family. Glucose transporter subfamily.
Cellular localizationCell 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.
