We have identified and cloned GLUT14, a novel member of the glucose transporter family. GLUT14 (SLC2A14) maps to chromosome 12p13.3 (17.1M), about 10 Mb upstream of GLUT3, with which it shares remarkable identity. Until now GLUT14 was thought to be a pseudogene. It consists of 11 exons with a genomic organization similar to that of GLUT3 and likely resulted from a duplication of GLUT3. GLUT14 has two alternatively spliced forms; the shorter form of GLUT14 (GLUT14-S) consists of 10 exons and… CONTINUE READING
