Summaries for SLC2A8 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for SLC2A8 Gene

  • This gene belongs to the solute carrier 2A family, which includes intracellular glucose transporters. Based on sequence comparison, the glucose transporters are grouped into three classes and this gene is a member of class II. The encoded protein, like other members of the family, contains several conserved residues and motifs and 12 transmembrane domains with both amino and carboxyl ends being on the cytosolic side of the membrane. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been described for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2012]

GeneCards Summary for SLC2A8 Gene

SLC2A8 (Solute Carrier Family 2 Member 8) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Vesicle-mediated transport and Transport of glucose and other sugars, bile salts and organic acids, metal ions and amine compounds. GO annotations related to this gene include transmembrane transporter activity and glucose transmembrane transporter activity. An important paralog of this gene is SLC2A6.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SLC2A8 Gene

  • Insulin-regulated facilitative glucose transporter. Binds cytochalasin B in a glucose-inhibitable manner. Seems to be a dual-specific sugar transporter as it is inhibitable by fructose (By similarity).
