Facilitated glucose transporters (GLUTs) mediate transport of sugars across cell membranes by using the chemical gradient of sugars as the driving force. Improved cloning techniques and database analyses have expanded this family of proteins to a total of 14 putative members. In this work a novel hexose transporter isoform, GLUT7, has been cloned from a human intestinal cDNA library by using a PCR-based strategy (GenBank accession no. AY571960). The encoded protein is comprised of 524 amino… CONTINUE READING
