Reconstitution of the glucose transporter from bovine heart.
Purification and characterization of the L-fucose transporter.
The glucose transporter of mammalian cells.
TLDR
The glucose transporter is now identified but may have modifications or other subunits that control its activity, with different degrees of asymmetry and a single binding site that varies in specificity depending on the conformation of the protein.
ATP does not regulate the reconstituted glucose transporter.
TLDR
To test whether allosteric ATP regulation of the transporter occurs, reconstituted glucose transport activity into liposomes using erythrocyte membranes without detergent treatment and the effects of ATP, present either outside, inside, or both inside and outside the liposome, on the transport activity were examined.
