GeneCards Summary for SLC2A3 Gene
SLC2A3 (Solute Carrier Family 2 Member 3) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SLC2A3 include Huntington Disease and Early Onset Absence Epilepsy. Among its related pathways are Transport of glucose and other sugars, bile salts and organic acids, metal ions and amine compounds and Glycosaminoglycan metabolism. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include transmembrane transporter activity and glucose transmembrane transporter activity. An important paralog of this gene is SLC2A14.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SLC2A3 Gene
Facilitative glucose transporter that can also mediate the uptake of various other monosaccharides across the cell membrane (PubMed:9477959, PubMed:26176916). Mediates the uptake of glucose, 2-deoxyglucose, galactose, mannose, xylose and fucose, and probably also dehydroascorbate (PubMed:9477959, PubMed:26176916). Does not mediate fructose transport (PubMed:9477959, PubMed:26176916).
