Differential subcellular distribution of glucose transporters GLUT1–6 and GLUT9 in human cancer: Ultrastructural localization of GLUT1 and GLUT5 in breast tumor tissues
It has been proposed that the enhanced metabolic activity of tumor cells is accompanied by an increased expression of facilitative hexose transporters (GLUTs). However, a previous immunohistochemicalExpand

Vitamin C Transporters, Recycling and the Bystander Effect in the Nervous System: SVCT2 versus Gluts
Vitamin C is an essential micronutrient in the human diet; its deficiency leads to a number of symptoms and ultimately death. After entry into cells within the central nervous system (CNS) throughExpand

Vitamin C uptake and recycling among normal and tumor cells from the central nervous system
Specialized cells transport vitamin C in its reduced form using sodium‐dependent cotransporters (SVCT1 and SVCT2). Additionally, different cells transport the oxidized form of vitamin C,Expand

Simultaneous equimolar expression of multiple proteins in plants from a disarmed potyvirus vector.
The use of viral vectors for expression of heterologous proteins in plants is hampered by some limitations including the amount of exogenous genetic information that can be incorporated, difficultiesExpand
