Expression of glucose transporters in lactating human mammary gland epithelial cells.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Human milk contains 60-80 g/l lactose and and oligosaccharides. To synthesize this large amount of carbohydrates, the lactating mammary gland has a high demand for precursor molecules. such as glucose and galactose. AIM OF THE STUDY In the present study we investigated the molecular basis for the uptake of glucose and galactose into the human… (More)
