HMDB Protein ID HMDBP11769
Secondary Accession Numbers None
Name Solute carrier family 2, facilitated glucose transporter member 8
  1. Glucose transporter type 8
  2. Glucose transporter type X1
  3. GLUT-8
Gene Name SLC2A8
Protein Type Unknown
Biological Properties
General Function Not Available
Specific Function Insulin-regulated facilitative glucose transporter. Binds cytochalasin B in a glucose-inhibitable manner. Seems to be a dual-specific sugar transporter as it is inhibitable by fructose (By similarity).
