BACKGROUND We previously identified the glucose transporter Glut-1, a member of the multimembrane-spanning facilitative nutrient transporter family, as a receptor for both HTLV-1 and HTLV-2. However, a recent report concluded that Glut-1 cannot serve as a receptor for HTLV-1 on CD4 T cells: This was based mainly on their inability to detect Glut-1 on this(More)
Of all cells in the human body, erythro-cytes express the highest level of the GLUT1 glucose transporter, with more than 200,000 molecules per cell (Mueck-ler et al., 1985). We found that GLUT1 expression is significantly upregulated in late-stage erythroblasts, whereas glucose transport is decreased (Mon-tel-Hagen et al., 2008a). This increase in GLUT1(More)
