We have isolated a clone from the rat jejunum cDNA library using a fragment of human GLUT5 cDNA as a probe. The coding region of this clone shares 80% nucleotide and 81% amino acid identity with human GLUT5 and is thus termed rat GLUT5 cDNA. Rat GLUT5 mRNA exhibited a tissue distribution very similar to that of human GLUT5, with the highest levels in the jejunum, but was not detected in fat, muscle, or testis on Northern blot analysis. The antipeptide antibody raised against the C-terminal… CONTINUE READING
