In passing through the surface of mammalian erythrocytes, the common monosaccharides evidently make use of a special “carrier” system (l-6) which is strongly inhibited by phloretin, the aglucon of phlorhizin (2, 7). In most species, the activity of this mechanism subsides to a vestigial level shortly after birth (8), but in man and some other primates it is peculiarly persistent in the adult. This system is often cited as the clearest example of that type of membrane transport which has been… Expand

Interactions of ATP, oestradiol, genistein and the anti-oestrogens, faslodex (ICI 182780) and tamoxifen, with the human erythrocyte glucose transporter, GLUT1.
TLDR
The cytoplasmic surface of the glucose transporter (GLUT)1 contains four sequences with close homologies to sequences in the ligand-binding domain of human oestrogen receptor beta (hesr-2) that are suitably placed to provide an ATP-sensitive oestrogens binding site that could modulate glucose export.
