Cloning and functional analysis of goat SWEET1.
Nanjing, China. In Genet Mol Res, 2014
Goat SWEET1 overexpression can reduce glucose absorption in mammary gland epithelial cells with increasing expression of GLUT1, GLUT4, and GLUT12, which may be attributed to glucose efflux arising from the leading role played by goat SWEET1.
Biology of glucose transport in the mammary gland.
Burlington, United States. In J Mammary Gland Biol Neoplasia, 2014
Mammary glands mainly express GLUT1 and GLUT8, and GLUT1 is the predominant isoform with a Km of ~10 mM and transport activity for mannose and galactose in addition to glucose.
Glucose transport in brain - effect of inflammation.
In Endocr Regul, 2014
GLUT4 and GLUT8 are insulin-regulated glucose transporters in neuronal cell bodies in the cortex and cerebellum, but mainly in the hippocampus and amygdala, where they maintain hippocampus-dependent cognitive functions.
Improved insulin sensitivity by GLUT12 overexpression in mice.
Saint Louis, United States. In Diabetes, 2011
Increased expression of GLUT12 results in improved whole-body insulin sensitivity mediated by an increased glucose clearance rate in insulin-responsive tissues under insulin-stimulated, but not basal, conditions.
