Overexpression of Glut-1 glucose transporter in human breast cancer. An immunohistochemical study.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Breast cancers have higher than normal glucose metabolism, but the mechanism of glucose entry into these tumors is not well understood. METHODS The expression of five facilitative glucose transporters, Glut-1 (erythrocyte type), Glut-2 (liver type), Glut-3 (brain type), Glut-4 (muscle/fat type), and Glut-5 (small intestine type), was studied by… (More)
