Gene: Slc2a4 (solute carrier family 2 (facilitated glucose transporter), member 4) Mus musculus
Analyze
Symbol: Slc2a4
Name: solute carrier family 2 (facilitated glucose transporter), member 4
Description: Exhibits glucose transmembrane transporter activity. Involved in several processes, including amylopectin biosynthetic process; brown fat cell differentiation; and glucose import in response to insulin stimulus. Localizes to several cellular components, including the cytoplasmic vesicle; extracellular exosome; and sarcolemma. Predicted to colocalize with the vesicle. Used to study type 2 diabetes mellitus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in type 2 diabetes mellitus. Is expressed in several structures, including adipose tissue; adrenal gland; alimentary system; brain; and genitourinary system. Orthologous to human SLC2A4 (solute carrier family 2 member 4); PARTICIPATES IN facilitative sugar transporter mediated glucose transport pathway; insulin responsive facilitative sugar transporter mediated glucose transport pathway; insulin signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH (-)-epigallocatechin 3-gallate; 1,1-dichloroethene; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: glucose transporter type 4, insulin-responsive; Glut-4; Glut4; GT2; solute carrier family 2, facilitated glucose transporter member 4; twgy
