Hexose transport into mammalian cells is catalyzed by a family of membrane proteins, including SLC2A6, that contain 12 transmembrane domains and a number of critical conserved residues.[supplied by OMIM, Jul 2002]
GeneCards Summary for SLC2A6 Gene
SLC2A6 (Solute Carrier Family 2 (Facilitated Glucose Transporter), Member 6) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SLC2A6 include testis seminoma and fanconi syndrome. Among its related pathways are PAK Pathway 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 SLC2A8.
