The human erythrocyte glucose transporter is a fully integrated membrane glycoprotein having only one N-linked carbohydrate chain on the extracellular part of the molecule. Several authors have suggested the involvement of the carbohydrate moiety in glucose transport, but not definitive results have been published to date. Using transport glycoproteins… CONTINUE READING
