High impact information on SLC2A5

  • Notably, the currents were desensitized, reduced in a glucose concentration-dependent manner, and markedly inhibited by either a second application of glucose or the addition of glucose to the patch electrode filling solution; they were potentiated, however, by treatment with cytochalasin B, a GLUT1 to GLUT5 inhibitor [1].
  • On the other side, transcripts from genes related with metabolism, growth, and differentiation (Glut-5, Cx 43, IGF-II, and IGF-IR) were detected in higher amounts in in vivo produced embryos and in embryos with fast developmental speed [2].
  • Transcript levels for mitochondrial Mn-superoxide dismutase (MnSOD), survivin, and glucose transport 5 (Glut-5) were significantly higher in ovine blastocysts than bovine (P < 0.05), while transcripts for Connexin 31 (Cx31), interferon tau (IFN-tau), and sarcosine oxidase (SOX) were significantly more abundant in bovine blastocysts (P < 0.01) [3].
  • RESULTS: Group 2 showed a 44% increase in galactose absorption (P < 0.01) and a 14% increase in GLUT-5 band intensity (P < 0.05), but no change in DNA content or SGLT band intensity [4].
  • We were able to detect small quantities of GLUT 3 in fetal liver and of GLUT 5 in postnatal liver [5].
