Hyperglycemia has been implicated in the pathogenesis of both micro- and macrovascular complications in diabetes. Little is known, however, about glucose transporters and their regulation in the vascular system. In this study, the regulation of glucose transporters by glucose was examined in cultured BAECs and BSMCs, and in human arterial smooth muscle cells. Both BAECs and BSMCs transported glucose via the facilitated diffusion transport system. Glucose-transport activity in vascular smooth… CONTINUE READING
