Specificity of the rat hepatocyte monosaccharide transporter






International Journal of Biochemistry 16(12): 1251-1254

Specificity of the rat hepatocyte monosaccharide transporter

The effect of a number of hexoses and pentoses on 3-O-methyl-D-glucose transport into isolated hepatocytes is reported. The hexoses tested inhibited transport in a competitive manner, with Kt values ranging from 80-190 mM. No significant inhibition was seen with either D-ribose or D-arabinose.
