Associations of SLC2A9 with chemical compounds

  • IL-1beta induces an increased expression of glucose transporter (GLUT) 1 mRNA and protein, and GLUT9 mRNA [6].

Other interactions of SLC2A9

  • Human articular chondrocytes express three facilitative glucose transporter isoforms: GLUT1, GLUT3 and GLUT9 [4].
  • GLUT9 did not bind cytochalasin B as shown by a cytochalasin B binding assay, indicating a similar behavior of GLUT9 compared with GLUT5 [1].
  • RESULTS: We identified 2 novel genes (GLUT8 and GLUT9) that are members of the facilitative glucose transporter family [7].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of SLC2A9

  • Western blotting confirmed the presence of the GLUT1 protein which migrated between the 50 and 64 kDa markers and two specific GLUT9 bands migrating under the 50 and 60 kDa markers, respectively [5].
  • We have previously used RT-PCR to show that fully developed human articular chondrocytes express transcripts for the GLUT1 and GLUT9 glucose transporters [5].
