Gene: Slc2a8 (solute carrier family 2, (facilitated glucose transporter), member 8) Mus musculus
Symbol: Slc2a8
Name: solute carrier family 2, (facilitated glucose transporter), member 8
Description: Exhibits dehydroascorbic acid transmembrane transporter activity; glucose binding activity; and hexose transmembrane transporter activity. Involved in several processes, including dehydroascorbic acid transport; hexose transmembrane transport; and insulin receptor signaling pathway. Localizes to integral component of plasma membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including adipose tissue; gut; liver; placenta; and spleen. Orthologous to human SLC2A8 (solute carrier family 2 member 8); INTERACTS WITH 1,2-dimethylhydrazine; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 2-acetamidofluorene.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: D2Ertd44e; glucose transporter type 8; glucose transporter type X1; glucose transporter X1; GLUT-8; GLUT8; GlutX1; intestinal GLUT8 transporter; solute carrier family 2, facilitated glucose transporter member 8
