Differential sorting of two glucose transporters expressed in insulin-sensitive cells.

The insulin-regulatable glucose transporter (IRGT) is specifically expressed in muscle and fat cells and undergoes translocation from an intracellular compartment to the cell surface following acute insulin treatment. This study examined sorting differences between the IRGT and the homologous HepG2/erythrocyte/brain glucose transporter (HepG2 GT) when… (More)
