6514P11168SLC2A2GLUT2solute carrier family 2 (facilitated glucose transporter), member 2
[more aliases]
FunctionGlucose transporter 2 isoform is an integral plasma membrane glycoprotein of the liver, islet beta cells, intestine, and kidney epithelium. It mediates facilitated bidirectional glucose transport. Because of its low affinity for glucose, it has been suggested as a glucose sensor.
